Ummm yeah he must be smokin something good... I am on my 4th OBS, all of them were lifted, and I have never heard of such a thing. I would get a second opinion...

And I cant see how your Pitman arm goes bad unless its cracked or something. whats wrong with the shackles?

Since you posted in the problem forum as well, check out my reply regarding this there. I give a link to TSB 97-3-10 that should answer some things. Cheers!

If your front end is in that bad of shape there's a chance it could have messed something else up under there. Stick your head under the the truck and look at the rivets. If that front end has been shiftin every which way there's a chance it could have popped a rivet loose.
