    Can anyone tell me how to determine whether I have a 3 or 4 spline pitman arm?

    give us a parts/labor cost breakdown.

    with a auto repair shop having all the proper tools all this would take 1 hour labor . 2 tie rods and idler/pitman arm on a lift with air powered tools and a wrench twisting basic nut and bolt guy.

    Price included all my bushings. I'm taking to the shop tomorrow for inspection. I'll just replace needed parts with basic parts. No energy suspension stuff.

    You know you can rent the necessary tools for the job through autoZone right? It's not a hard job if you have an impact gun

    No impact gun. I know I can do the work. I'm just lazy. Plus, I need to put in a ton of work on my bike.

    Got my truck checked. Everything seems to be fine and tight. Nothing seems to be loose.

    Guess I'll let out some air in my tires to soften things up a little.

    So...all of this help from the forum was without you getting your suspension checked out first? And, now you find you don't need anything? Am I getting this correct? wow.....

    Yep. Running lower PSI helped greatly. I'm planning on greasing all my zerks now. If it makes you feel better, I learned a lot about tie rod ends and ball joints in the process. I also did lots of research.
