High Steer Tie Rod and Drag Link Brackets

I came across these at Sam's Offroad. Are these good to relocate the steering linkage? What other solutions are there?

Re: High Steer Tie Rod and Drag Link Brackets

There are what is commonlt referred to as 'high clearance steering'. This is accomplished by moving the tie rod and drag link to the TOP of the knuckles from the middle of the knuckle, and the objective is to allow you to hook up normal steering linkage (SOA), reduce angles for less bump steer, and move everything up so it is less likely to be damaged.

On a dana 44 you need flat top knuckles from a chev or early jeep. regular knuckles, like those on a wagoneer, are not flat on top and therefore cannot be machined to accept another steering arm

The brackets basically bolt to the top of the knuckles, and extends from the knuckles out like the regular steering arm so that you can then bolt your tie rod etc to it. Sometimes the tie rod and.or drag link has to be shortened. In order to bolt the brackets on, you typically have to machine the passenger side knuckle so that it will have the same 3 studs in the same pattern as the driver's side knuckles came with. The steering arms bolts to these studs.

This is a simplified version of what this is, hope it helps.
