    I have a 4” bds lift on my 97 Chevy. I can’t find any tie rods long enough to get my alignment done and I was wondering if you guys made any.

      Hi Dondray, just for clarification we don’t (and haven’t ever) offered a 4″ kit for the ’88-98 GM1500 4WD trucks. We have a 6″ IFS kit for your truck, but it reuses the factory steering linkage to connect to our new steering knuckles. We don’t offer longer aftermarket tie rod ends for this application.

      If the kit installed per our instructions (see step 57 of http://bds-suspension.com/instructions/021605.pdf) the stock center adjustment turnbuckle is cut shorter (1/2″ per side) to get the overall linkage length close to what’s needed to work with our knuckles while still allowing the adjustability to set alignment. If too much is cut off of the turnbuckle it would cause the linkage to be too short which is what it sounds like you are having the issue with.
