I have an 06 2500 HD with 67,000 miles. I have a 6" RCD kit that was put on in the last 10K miles. The truck has 285 wheels. From reading on here it sounds like the steering parts are starting to wear. I called the shop that put on my 6" RCD lift and they want over $600 to put on a new idler/pitman arms. I was looking at the kit below, is this something the weekend mechanic can do? Is this what I want to fix the issues? Will this work with a 6" RCD lift?

i just put that kit on today. its not to hard but i have a lift i dont know if i would try to tackle it in the driveway. its a little tricky geting the OEM stuff off but once its off puting the new on and installing the brackets is easy. If you do it yourself you will need a pitman arm puller and you have to unbolt the steering box from the frame to get the puller on the pitman. You will have to heat the pitman arm to get it off. If you use a pry bar and put pressure on the pitman and idler arm where they go through the centerlink and smack them with a hammer a couple times they should break loose but if the truck is on the ground that is going to be hard to do.
