    Default To Drop the Pitman or OEM?

    Awright...
    "Bessy" is back from the body shop with a straightened frame, and level front bumper....

    Borgeson steering shaft is next, but....
    Do I go with the drop pitman arm, or stick with stock?
    2.5" Superlift, 1" body lift, and 3/4" with the shackles....
    Is it OVERALL lift, or JUST suspension amount that determines "to drop or not"?

    KTHNXBYE
    PS Replacing tie rod ends also.

    You should be ok with only 1'' body lift. Stay with the stock pitman arm, and do a tie rod flip! Check out my thread in the tech write up section for before and aftr pics. You can see how low a drop arm sits, right down into 'rock territory'!

    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.
