I have an 08 sierra and am trying to finish up my 3"" PA BL. I am stuck with the steering extension, it don't seem to wanna fit. It looks fine without it though, just wondering if I have to run the extension or what any input would be great
thanks Brian:mad:

Mine was tight but it went together. Had to wiggle it a lot. I think your NNBS is the same setup.

So is it necessary to put the extension in if the stock setup looks fine and seems to be long enough?
I would be worried about it binding if you didnt add it

I had to work late tonight so no time to work on the truck, but ya mine seems like its long enough without the extension. I am worried tho cuz i agree with the guys above it's in the kit for a reason and it sure doesn't look cheap to make, so hopefully i find a way to fit it in, thanks to everyone.

Alright so heres what might have happend with my steering extension. I had a buddy helping me and he just loosened the bolt for the steering extension, but didn't remove it. Well where is connects it is jointed out so it wouldn't drop down when i jacked it up for the body lift. So my problem now i think i might have tweaked something in my steering. Should i just try to force the extension in and hope it works back out or what??? i can get pics if anyone needs them. some input would be great

first pic is the new extension and the other two are stock, the grean bolt is what i should have completely removed instead of just loosened

the part i think that got tweaked is in the boot above where the spacer goes

no it comes apart but when i try to put the extension in, the angle for it to fit is off, thats why i think i bent something
