    If I agreed with you, then we would both be wrong

        Pitman arm too.

        If the concern is too much play in the steering, it's a good idea to have a mate rock the steering wheel from side to side as you check the play down the steering column, steering box, pitman arm, idler arm and tie rod ends. You can see the play readily enough just by looking at each component while the steering is in use.

          Try to get components that include a grease nipple. While strictly not necessary on cars, if you do water crossings regularly it's a good idea to push grease in to displace the water afterwards.

            +1 greasable joints are a big bonus.

            Hows your upper control arm bushes? Might be worth doing them and greasing your wheel bearings while you're at it.

            Are you planning on doing a wheel alignment afterwards?

              yes andy I will be getting ones with nipples, and pauly yes wheel bearings and wheel alignment will be done. I just had someone move the steering wheel back and forward while I was under the front looking at each component and I couldn't see any extra movement, I tightened the steering box up a bit while I was at it, bloody hard to get at when its lifted 4".
