i just lifted my 72 gmc more it has a 6"susp and i just put a body lift in it to clear my 38.5 boggers. and my steering coloum is on a bad angle coming off the fire wall. its not letting me turn the tires to the left anywhere past streight and when i turn it right its not smooth at all. i think i need to go to a U-joint setup on it. does anyone know what trucks have them??? or any way to fix this. the coloum is extended out alread so i need some other way[cheers]

if you have tilt maybe try putting some spacers between the colunm and the dash to lower the steering wheel end of the column, then just set the tilt up one click to keep the wheel out of your lap

I prefer to think of us as a Drinking Club with 4x4 problems !!
