Power steering questions

Post by 724x4bronco » Mon Feb 13, 2012 6:00 pm

hey im doing the 4x4x2 box and i just have a few questions im hopping you guys can answer. first can i use the old manual lower steering shaft or do i need to get a power steering specific one? second im doing a 3 1/2 inch suspension lift, do i need the drop pitman arm, because i seen the 4in drop pitman arms and no other drops. Third is it nesacary to reinforce the frame with a plate of steel and if i dont what will happen? And finally i was reading some were else and they were saying when you drill the new holes in the frame it will end up inside the front cross member, what are some of the things you guys have done? Any info will help, thanks guys.
