Re: Alternative to Hy-Steer Revisited
The rod from the steering box is too short. The shorter the rod, the more it "changes length" when the suspension compresses. Why did they anchor it in the centre? Because the susp will pivot on centre if only one wheel compresses?? They should have followed the original jeep engineers and made it as long as possible. Just like a panhard bar, suspension link, etc, if it's short, it goes out of geometry quickly when it is cycled.
