I bought this truck with some form of lift already on it. I don't know the lift but I'd GUESS 3" and it consists of stock springs with the fixed end of the leafs lowered. Comparing my 95 to my buddy's 97, my shackles are on the rear of the spring compared to his on the front, and my fixed-end hangs down lower than his. Since I haven't had this as stock, I don't know how it was set up from the factory. I have a about 15* of play in my steering wheel and I've replaced (for different reasons) my gearbox, drag link, tie rods, ball joints, bearings, etc. Basically everything from the gearbox down, minus the pitman arm. I *think* my pitman arm is a 3" drop (the factory was flat right?). From this picture, does anyone know if this is correct geometry? It's the only reason left I can think of why my steering is so loose!
Edit: PS, ignore the various leaks in the picture!
Thanks and Gig 'Em!
