Cognito Braces: Pitman/Idler arms

If any of you guys are thinking about doing this mod...all i can say is WOW...what a difference. stiffened the steering right up..no more factory slop. I also installed new Pitman/Idler arms - stock MOOG replacements as mine were getting worn.

Cognitco UCA's & HD Tierod sleeves are on the way from NorCal. a set of front Bilstein 5100's sittin on the bench in my shop.! after 2.5 years, I finally get to level this truck..

(FYI for us Canadians - note that NorCal Truck will in fact ship via USPS as opposed to UPS...it'll save ya large on borkerage fees and possibly no taxes either. Absolutely Super bunch to deal with.!)

cheers,

stk

One of these days I'll get to my truck. I have the parts on the bench.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Merchant put these on my truck at around 30K. I have over 90K on the truck now, and no slop at all.

Guys, tell this GM neophite what this does for the steering. Does it allow for a taller tire, too?

Speak slowly and deliberately. I don't know JACK about IFS compared to SFA.

Duke, I think the information on the Cognito site explains it well.
