drag link

Do they sell an "s" shaped drag link for wranglers? If they do where could I get one cheap. I would rather use one of these than a drop pitman arm. Please help.

Re: drag link

Contact Scott at http://www.rockstomper.com He can likely make you whatever you need, and at a reasonable price. I bought tie rod and draglink from him and am very pleased. He's a great guy to talk to, he works fast and does quality stuff.

My rockstomper story: I mounted his tie rod in factory holes on steering knuckle (dana 44), and put my draglink on a hysteer arm on top of the knuckle. Big time interference problems. drop pitman no longer worked, another guy sold me a stock yj arm, said "this works, it's what all the guys use with that hysteer setup". Yeah, well that didn't work. Some more research and the best I could come up with was use a stock CJ straight arm and ream and retaper it to accept the large TRE on my new draglink; but that wasn't leaving a whole lot of material around the end of the pitman, and four different machine shops later, I could find nobody that had the right taper to cut the hole. Getting desperate, I called Scott up and asked him for advice. Told him I need a straight pitman arm that can be bored to accept large TRE from the top. He said "probably one off a GM car could work, hmmm, hang on a minute..........got one in the corner over here". I asked about retapering the hole; no problem, I can do it, he sez. Well he got me setup with the arm, remachined, and then only charged fifty bucks. He's earned my future business and my recommendation.

Oh yeah, he knows how to fabricate, too, him and his Toyota competed at TTC this year. He beefed up and modified the IFS; pretty cool; especially when other Toy guys just swap in straight axles.
