    I am in the middle of a saginaw setup and am wondering if I will be able to run a steering stabilizer? Is it okay to try and drill a mounting hole into the pitman arm or somehow clamp it on? Pictures would be nice. Muchos gracias.

    I used the u-bolt mounting style for both the axle and on the drag link. I used the hecklethorn kit from JToutfitters. Seems to work good. I will get some pictures posted tomorrow.

    No, don't try to mount it to the pitman arm. One end of the steering stabilizer should be mounted to the axle housing, and the other end to the tie rod.
