Anyone still have a reamer they would loan out if I pay shipping? Will also replace if damaged.

Anyone know if this is a worthwhile mod on something with 2" of lift? I'm just interested in the better clearance they provide.

generally its more for 4+ inch lift. just like a dropped pitman arm but better

also Saltlife, did you use the sleeves? you know the idea of using the sleeves is to ream the hole deeper than without so you don't hourglass the hole.

So, let me get this straight.
If I wanted to do this (after/during my 4" lift) It would be better to do it with Chevy TREs, but they are thicker than the ford ones so would not require the 30 dollar sleeves? I would just have to use the same reamer and keep testing with the actual TRE until the hole was the right size?

I know you believe you understood what you think I said
but I am not sure you realize that what you heard
is not what I meant
