Tom, there is not any quality difference. And no need for one with a RSK. I have stock pitman arms in both my crew cabs

What is the lowest size they come in 3"? Cary are you saying you think one is not needed with an RSK? I was not sure what part you were X2. Brad I had remembered your thoughts on being OK without the drop pitman arm.

Glad to see this as Black Friday to me is a day that the wife won't interupt me while working on the truck! So I'm finally going to install my Sky 5" RSK and rear add-a-leaf that I've had for almost 2 years waiting for install.

That being said does anyone have the 5" kit with the stock pitman arm? I'm worried that I will need a drop arm, or a stabilizer. I already have longer shocks and brake lines to go on. I'm very worried that I'm going to need the drop arm and an adjustable drag link. Any thoughts?

YUP, and no bump steer
Mine aren't parallel. Close, but no cigar. The 3" drop bracket that came the the Sky kit is too much. Tom's request for a 2" drop arm is what I might need, too.

The discussion about steering boxes and the reduction in clunks and bumpsteer when a totally wornout box gives me hope that my Redhead box will cure all or most of that.

You are going to need a drop pitman arm(the 4-6" one) and a adjustable track bar would be a good idea too(along with the drop bracket)

I didn't use any drop bracket for my track bar or a drop pitman arm. I just used an adjustable track bar from Sky. I did this in both my crewcabs with out any issues

Brad,

I have the same setup and still not parallel. Do you have SD springs?

Thanks.

I put the rsk in mine and I lives it. I drove my other 97 and I do have a noticeable bump steer. Yes the front steering pieces are new and alignment was done
