YJ tub, CJ front clip, Scout D44s, flat top knuckles for home made HD GM joint hi-steer using SKY Off Road arms.
When I installed the hi-steer I hated looking at the factory tie rod castings sticking out of the GM knuckles and hacked them off. Lesson learned.
After only a couple of runs and everyday driving a knew I did not have the steering radius I had with the old setup.
I purchased a waggy pitman arm hoping I could clearance the tie rod enough to get it to fit. No go. It sat in my garage for the last few years and I put up with the poor steering.
This spring I decided to tweak a few things on the Jeep and steering radius moved to the top of the list.
After much searching I found this:
Jeep YJ 87-95 Steering Box Bracket from Mountain Off-Road (M.O.R.E.)
It's a bit pricy, but the only version I could find that would allow me to continue to use the factory sway bar with discos.
I HAVE MY STEERING BACK! A high quality piece that now allows me to run the waggy pitman and steer lock to lock both directions.
I had to trim a small amount of the CJ grill to avoid the power steering lines at the top of the gear and it took a pull off between my pickup and a farm tractor to get my steering shaft to extend. Otherwise the installation was flawless.
I would imagine that this could help anyone with a YJ, who switched to 44 knuckles and highsteer. Or anyone who upgrades their CJ stuff to a YJ frame like me. There are also more options to do this with the weak CJ steering gear mount that would probably enable the use of the waggy arm.
It cost about $135 shipped to my door. It would have taken a couple of days at least for me to move the gear on my own. This was a couple of hours.
