Re: Anyone Running A MIT SOA Draglink??

Well if my opinion means anything, don't bother with it. I made a similar one out of my rear track bar by cutting it to size, boring the ends a bit and inserting 5" long cut-off threaded end pieces of a spare draglink. The tierod still rotates fore and aft under load and there is a teeth jarring bump steer. My main problem was the half turn play in the steering wheel caused by the rotating tierod. It is still there. The only advantage I found was the added clearance and length so my rod ends now screwed in at least 2 inches which makes me feel safer. I got the MORE kit already but now have questions about weather it will pass inspection with the kit or not. We'll see I guess.

Re: Anyone Running A MIT SOA Draglink??

I don't actually have it installed yet. The knuckle bracket is the main piece and it is well made and pretty strong looking. There is some grinding to be done on the knuckle before drilling and tapping but I have this done by a machine shop as it is very important to have a precise fit so there is no play or wobble anywhere between the knuckle and the bracket. The rods are thick walled and are plenty strong. The MORE guys are running this kit with 36 and 38" tires without any problem. Since it didn't make $$$ sense to me to upgrade to a D44 and there is no D60 in my future (yet) I'll take this kit and throw some '95 shafts in there and call it done. I've yet to brake the front anyway.
