reddot when you start a new thread could you put a link on here to tie them together for future readers. I hate it when you go to an old link and you never hear "the rest of the story".

I will post a link to the new thread when ready.
Ill do my best for pics. I dont have a camera so ill see if I can get one from a freind when I do the install.

DODGEPICKUP, depending on when you are looking for new CA I might be able to sell yah mine. Im looking to get the dick cepek long arm kit, but thats on the list after either a custom cross over steering system or the 25/3500 steering parts. Im going to talk to a local guy that has a small off road shop behind a exhaust shop. I would think he would be able to do it with some what ease. Just let me know.

Once I get my motorcycle paid off ill have more money for parts.

spun and I wear talking about switching the heim joint on the track bar but now im thinking it would be good to have a little flexability on one end the the bar. Im sticking with the tc end links. They are suppose to add some flex and if I need more they should be really easy to pop off.

Side note: This is the long arm kit.

So for any that are wondering, I finally made up my mind and ordered the windecker (aka solid steel) conversion bracket and there non-adjustable track bar as I will not be lifting the truck, I also plan to order the red head box soon.
I will let you know of the results.

I just went to solidsteel.biz and ordered from Source Automotive Performance Diesel. One of their US distributers. It appears that solid steel and windecker are the same company. Just ordered the Red head box too. $286, not bad for a quality box!

Got the red head box and solid steel track bar conversion in yesterday. PITA but what a difference!!!! It handles better than when I bought it. Zero play in the steering and the wheels turn sooo much smoother and with much less effort. Worth every penny I spent!

I just found out that its my gear box that is causing my loose steering. I did tighten the asjuster bolt on top and it did help but I still need to do more for 100% steering again. So I will be getting a redhead box before the cross over steering instead of the other way around.
