if you go spoa you must flip your U-bolt plates from left one on the right and right to the left. go with drop pitman arm or high cross over don't go with Z-link. if you are looking for suspention, make higher shock mounts for the front. stock chevy break lines work great, a little longer and stronger.

Why not a z-link?? I've never had trouble with mine.

FYI, the front u-bolt plates are not interchangeble side to side. The passenger side has about 1/4" wider spread on the u-bolt holes and the u-bolts are wider to clear the huge Sami differential <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I agree that you need to make (or buy) new upper shock mounts for the front. Don't forget that you need new lower shock mounts all the way around.

ok, I understand that in the rear I can swap the right and left u-bolt plates and use for lower shockmounts, I can make my own for the front(Lower) but what about the upper? just wondering if anyone buys some other brand and welds them in. like on the toyota you would use f-250 shock towers. anybody try anything like that. and what is the z-link? pictures???anybody? thanks for the help.
