    Comments about Driveworks Steering Idler Arm:

    If you are doing the frame bracket, that is the hard part. Once the new bracket is installed, the idler arm is a breeze. Mount it, start your bolts, use correct torque spec, align cotter pin hole, install and bend cotter pin and your done.

                  Tried saving $ on this instead of a known good Moog even though I've had issues on my other smaller truck with the cheapies. I guess we'll see how this one holds up.
