Well one important piece to doing my lift today is not here. I am as retarded as can be so it's a lot my fault but got my torsion bars off and pulled out an about shocks out after using my neighbors lift an got my truck 5 ft in air plow frame off. I realize. I DONT HAVE STEERING KNUCKLES FOR THE LIFT!!!! Yes I bought the kit used and as I got it layer out I see mix and matched parts from other companys that person has used to lift. His truck after learning this lift didn't fit his truck. My damn fault but. I overall need help. I will call rancho first this in a.m. To see how much I am loosing to get those knuckles left an right. Otherwise I have everything or friend hooked me up with it.

4" lift is what's goin on sorry. Also if anyone knows where the he'll I can perhaps find those knuckles. Something someone has here??

Just left the body shop. Family friends so he is makin a REAL high quote. I told him ultimately having it done Wednesday the 6th is the best. If he can't don't start it.

So dents or not im goin down. Worse case would be he gets me a new tail light and we drill it up for the strobes and tint it to match and i'll be on my way down. Were not missin it dude!

Or best case is pops lets me use his Freightliner since he did the damage haha. That would rock. Big rig camper and room to bring my street bike and crap. park right at the bars an drive now where aha
