Yeah,
Matt's pretty cool but he probably has a bad taste in his mouth like many of us do about Rize. Part of the issue that it's next to impossible to get replacement parts for the goofy steering system and the arms.

What I would do in your situation is I would call up Marty at Truck Toyz Performance. I don't know if he is there right now, but talk to someone there about your issue. I know these guys have put a ton of those lift kits on trucks. They know how to fix them. Hopefully they can get you some parts that you can install yourself to fix or at least send you in the right direction.
