After a couple trips one of which was the Dusy is 3"+ of snow my steering system has some issues and is in a need of repair. I'm not exactly sure what the problem is other then It started binding turning driver this weekend and is leaking some fluid form the pump. I'll find out more Wednesday when I have sometime.

My question is should I keep it stock, or upgrade? I'm running 37's with plenty of extra weight in armor.

I've come across the some high steer threads, redneck hydro, HD arms, 1tons and Jose's y link but can't find a system I like. That being said after running the Dusy and seeing a truck get stuck up there for a week I 'd like to have a complete set of replacement parts on hand in case of failure

Right now I'm leaning toward a rebuilt stock setup since backup parts are readily available.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm worried about the highway drivability of the slee arms, not sure if there's same issues with the Hellfire or not ?

Not sure there. But that's what I plan on doing after I go 3 link. That setup seems plenty strong since you use 3 studs up top connected to the 4 studs of the lower arm. If I had money to burn I'd go with Hellfire. But at $1k, that would almost pay for my transfer case gears and part-time spool

Are Hellfire knuckles available today? Or is there a wait list?

Locally I'm hearing different chatter... Nothing bad, and I can't officially comment. But a bird on the street told me something...

In reff to the wait that is...

Is my $2k in danger of disappearing?

No... Like I said nothing bad. Just a rumor, for the good.

Not sure what that means. But I'm putting in a deposit today. Billy's communication has been good but still Hope there's no BS that goes along with it.

Thank for the help.

I'm also selling my Y / T link in the classified if anyone is looking to go that route.

Thanks,
