Good steering but....
Good steering setup but with a drop pitman arm due to my lift, needed to reverse the direction of the spacers on the pitman arm end of the drag link in order to keep drag link and tie rod from touching near the passenger wheel, also could use a bit heavier duty hiem joints, the ones included seem slightly anemic, for those that do this themselves like myself some printed instructions would be nice. Once we got the spacer thing figured out and made sure it was adjusted correctly performs great on the trail as well as the road, a pro tip we found out after death wobble, measure center to center of back of front tires and then measure c 2 c front center of front tires, front should be as close to 1/8" narrower as possible as the slight toe in is NECESSARY for correct steering geometry to avoid the dreaded death wobble, as long as tie rod and drag links are correct otherwise you should be golden. The other tip I would share is get an extra pitman arm like what is on there as the bolt hole where the drag link attaches will need to be drilled out to 5/8" (just in case you goof it up), also you will need to drill the steering knuckle bolt holes to 5/8" so make sure you get a HIGH QUALITY bit, I used a Milwaukee titanium one from home depot that worked okay(snagged a few times), spend the money for a cobalt bit made for hardened steel, should be smoother and easier. Lastly it doesn't hurt to plan a full day for the job if diy for any adjustments and a good shakedown run on the road and a trail you know. Actual labor took probably about 2 hrs to do as my pitman arm was changed out about 6 months ago but a pitman arm puller is NEEDED, also spray the pitman arm for several days at least once or twice a day to help free the pitman arm on the vehicle to swap drilled one in or drill the existing one. All that said good steering setup for the price would buy again if needed.
