High steer on a sua CJ.

I have a 4in spring sua CJ. I have to keep sua for jersey inspection. Anyway, i havent jacked up one tire yet to see if it will clear, but will the draglink clear the frame when the tires stuffs. I know every spring is differnt and each jeep flexes different. I am just looking to see if i am just wasting my time or do i have a chance. Also what is a normally price or flattop knuckles. Do the drivers side normally sell for less cause there are more of them.

Re: High steer on a sua CJ.

What knuckles are you using?
Are they D30?
If so you can make them high steer with a reamer and larger tierod ends. My setup clears easily and is plenty high.
Here's a link to my site that shows how I did it.

Jim,

I am going to say no. Im trying to picture it in my head but will look at mine when I get home. Jim - Keep in mind that either way you modify your steering can fail you at inspection. Just like the Heims I used aren't legal. They are on top.

Re: High steer on a sua CJ.

Let me add some more info here. I have a waggy 44 and i using the waggy draglink and tierod. I want to go with the steering on top of the knuckle with flattops. I am just wondering if when i stuff the tire the draglink will hit the frame.

Re: High steer on a sua CJ.

Around $70-80 is the normal price for flat-tops. Parts mike machines the passenger knuckle for $60. He also sells new knuckles for like $250 I believe.
