No doubt. The tie rod alone is worth the three bills.

Nice, I'm running both of those on my rig. I went with the Daystar BL because of the full replacement pucks. I didn't want to stack new pucks on top of old. Just a note, I did have to elongate the mounting holes on my LoPro mount to get everything to line up. Other than that I love it. Solid purchases.

Oh. I thought they had a flat skid, but I guess it's the 1" skid that needs the body lift and mm lift. Ive been looking at the one that doesn't require the body lift.

Lu, where'd you get that sweet deal on the Currie HD steering? I think mine was $400 and not with the Savvy tie rod. When I recently looked at the Savvy setup, it was listed at $500 for the Savvy tie rod and drag link setup.
