Alternative to hi-steer?
Okay, attached picture of and idea (I'm sure someone has thought of this already) as a possible alternative to a hi-steer setup for soa. Currently with a soa & 4" dropped pitman arm I dont have a real bad angle on the drag link, however, the 1 1/4" diameter drag link does hit the passenger leaf. Making a bracket like this one could have a parallel drag link/tie rod, and not hit any leafs if it wasn't too long. I know the plate would have to be strong and welded to tie-rod to support forces, but what else could go wrong here, what am I overlooking. Sorry for the rough pic, I could do a fancy CAD one, but they get to be big files.
