Brown Santa came today. Hopefully this will cure my front end issues. Fingers crossed.

Anyone feel like helping me out? Not sure I have all the tools and definitely lack the know how. I'll provide beer, cigars and midget strippers if need be.

Brown santa inbound for me as well




I'm willing to help if you want some. I don't usually get in on wrenching parties though because I've been told I'm a pain in the ass to work with

That's why my company sticks me in a van by myself

I did a drag link adjustment when I did my lift, and I've had to adjust my tie rod after bending it, and that's all on a jeep, but I've re-built steering on a few other things over the years.

The entire front end of my 1964 panel truck is out of a 1985 full size, and the steering box is out of a late 70s Camero, so it's all custom.

If the spined drag link doesn't come off, cut/split it in half....
and then put the new one on......
This in itself will save you alot of aggrevation.....
