Power Steering Flush Power Steering Flush

I think this is about the best we can do without a bunch of equipment and will probably flush out at least 90% of what's in the system.
At 50,000 miles, my old fluid was dark brown, almost black. I wasn't having any issues with the steering, just cheap preventive maintenance.....
With rack and pinion steering on my 2013, it took a little less than two quarts before I saw clean fluid in the clear ...

Cupping back again. When I purchased the truck in Jan 2015 @123k miles both front tires were cupping on the inside. I change the shocks and rotated the tires. 1 front and 1 rear shock were bad. Seemed to cure the cupping, but now at 128k my driver's inside tire started to cup. Truck drives smooth and straight. Read on few threads that's on 4x4 trucks this is normal, but I have a 2wd. Also ...

Help me choose a lift. Help me choose a lift.

It's simple, help me choose a lift. I want to get a lift going, my bilstein 5100s allow me 2.5" of lift. That's all I'll really need.

1500/2002/4wd/ls/ext cab/5.3l

I plan on getting the largest tires available with whatever I choose. Which will probably be 31/32/33s.

Should I have a shop install whatever kit I choose? I've been looking at torsion keys and rear blocks, is that a step in the right direction?
