Steering stop adjustment question

Swapped an 86 Cj wide track front axle into my Jeepster. Going to install a redneck ram and when I measured the steering stop to stop, I noticed my stop bolts are out at least 3/4 of an inch. Any reason why I cant increase the amount I turn (smaller radius) by adjusting those in some more. Obviously only enough that I dont hit the frame or anything. I just want to know if they are preset like that so I don't put too much stress on the axle ujoints or something. Any ideas?

Re: Steering stop adjustment question

they are normally welded from the factory.....if the weld was ground of by the previous owner of the axle, then you should be able to move them back in....

if they are in the factory depth, I THINK that was as far in as they would go....they were bottomed out......

I could be wrong though

someone will prolly chime in with an angle you shouldnt exceed for your U-Joints...i dont know it off hand and dont feel like looking it up
