I have DJM Dream beams on my 92. It lays frame with minor notching of the frame for the tie rods.

get dream beams you will be close depending on your tire size. you have to notch the front frame for the tie rods, but you also will have your pitman arm hit your tierod, so that will stop your truck from getting it down to the frame. a little smaller tire and you can lay frame

what did you do for your pitman arm on your tie rod. On my 89 I still gotta get the trans xmember and y pipe redone to sit above my frame. I was just curioius on the pitman arm and your fix for that.

I let the weight of the truck bend the tie rod. It still hits a little when layed out but it works. Some guys heat them to get them to bend easier but I don't recommend it.
