Hey Everyone! I am new to the forum. Just picked up my first Silverado a month ago! Its a 2004 1500 extended cab. Has a fabtech 3.5" lift on 35s. When I bought it I found out the idler and pitman arm were gone. I guess its common that they wear fast on these trucks. Did some research and saw a lot of good things about the Cognito pitman/idler brace kit. So I decided to replace the idler, idler bracket, pitman arm, inner and outer tie rod ends, all Moog, and install the cognito kit. Installed everything. Followed the instructions to a T. Went straight from the lift to the alignment rack. After all was said and done the braces hit the drag link on full lock turns both left and right forcing the drag link downward. Was just wondering if anyone might have had a similar issue? I have the stock center drag link so it shouldn't mess with the kit. All I can think of while driving is the pitman arm stud getting stressed and snapping on me while coming down a mountain haha! I will most likely take the kit off but I'd like to avoid throwing $250 down the drain! Any suggestions would be much appreciated gents! Thanks!
