Hello. I would like to build a bracket coming off of the left framerail to support the bottom of the pitman arm, as there is to much play there for good tight steering. My question is what do you guys use to go from the nut to a bearing. It looks like the o.d. of the threads coming out of the bottom are about 22 mm or .867 inches in diameter. Do you weld a pipe to the nut and then place a bearing around this pipe? I was thinking of getting rid of the lockwasher, use locktight, and mount the bearing directly to the threads underneath the nut. How do you do it? Thanks.

SSI makes a bracket that extends across the frame and is bolted to the swaybar mounts. the kit comes with a new "nut" that has an extension on it that the bearing goes around, and the bearing is bolted to the brace. it's only 160$ USD (mine was 215$ Canadian) pretty cheap really once you factor in your time and parts. Check out Stainless Steel Industries, there will be pics on the site then you will have a better idea
