steering stops?

If birfields are weakest in the hard over position, how about limiting the steering throw a bit to keep the pressure off of them joints?
Bueler?
Anyone?

Great idea, if you only plan on going straight [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Turning radius is bad enough already, you wouldnt be able to negotiate any turns at all if you reduced the steering throw.

Re: steering stops?

rear steer :O)
flipping a front axle and using it in the rear in addition to limiting the steering a little in the front and rear.
oh yeah...add birfield rings too.
I guess swapping axles would be easier.

Then you'd be breaking rear birfields and axles.

Re: steering stops?


Some guys have done this to help minimize the rubbing on the front tires at full lock. It does diminish the turning radius a bit, but not too bad.

Easiest way is to use one of the dost cover bolts on the backside and increase the head size on it. It contacts an axle member which acts as a turn stop.
