    the guy that put on the lift welded bigger plates to the body lift(to make it more stable) and welded it on the truck so im stuck with them and it rides smooth the way it is and i dont want to try to ripe them off and mess something up1

    Thought so. You have an old trailmaster lift on there. Notice there is no stock a-arm. You are going to up a creek if tha secondary strut (on the spindle) fails.
