Yes the force of the pitman arm on the knuckle will make the body sway/lift up. but instead of spending 8-10,000.00 on a 12 inch i've put it together my self. so far i've got less than 2500.00 in it and everything is great other than the sway/roll. It started off as a 8" pro comp. bought some +10" coils, a 2.5" spacer, a tgc 12" 4 link, +8" sway bar links (and still using the sway bar drop bracket from pro comp) and i have a custom made adjustable trac bar that mounts on top of the axle. still using the pitman arm that came with the 8" for now. but from what i have discovered is that they don't make a pitman arm with more of a drop than the one i have. and i'm not paying 2650.00 for the 12" rize steering setup. this is about the 6th truck i've done this way never been on a f250 all the others were dodge 2500 never had this problem with them put them through hell and they worked great.. made a few phone calls today and learned that no one makes them for an 05-07 because it pretty much has one from the factory that was my first idea on how to solve this problem but i believe a drop sway bar will solve my issue have a guy building me one now with some 1.5" .250 wall tubing and some heim joints.. i made some adjustments to the rear sway bar and mounted it on top of the axle and it resolved most of the roll other than when turning the wheel. probably gonna upgrade the factory sway bar on the front becaust its tiny. the two pictures that are attatched are what i'm doing to solve the steering issue.
