Tie rod Bendage
Dang it! 37 inch tire, rocks, and a bent tie rod. Should have known. I purchased some 1/4 inch thick, 1 inch angle to weld to the sucker. Anyone know of a way to mount the tie rod ends over the steering knuckles (knuckle under?) I think this would help the angle of the dangle and put less stress on the rods and ends in addition to welding on the angle.
The drag link bent without contact from a rock, just steering against rock, I think. I fixed it, on the trail, with my come along and adjusted the toe when I got to flat pavement. Now I'm going to try to straiten it and weld on the angle.
