Cj - SOA/waggy 44 steering question
Wow, it seems like forever since I posted last. Anyways, I have been rather busy on my jeep and have all my outboard spring mounts in place and the springs ready to bolt on. (SOA with regular width waggy axles) My question is about my steering issues. Im not worried about whether or not I'll need a new pitman arm, but rather, is my tie rod going to get in the way of my springs? I have a feeling that the drag link is going to hit the spring when I turn right. I know that if I leave the pinion angle basically flat that the tie rod will be in the way as well. Does anyone know what pinion angle is needed to clear the tie rod? Also, is it a bad idea to weld something on to the top of the knuckle to hook the drag ling to? Has anyone else fixed this problem? Im sure someone has but what is the best way (and hopefully economical way-money is an issue) to do it?
Thanks for the help.
