Just got the upgrade bug or is this a solution for an identified weakness?
It's a longer term plan. I want to eliminate ball joints up front and have hi steer. If/when I do it I will go full hydro up front and push the axle forward.

Is there some reason you're anti-ball joint as a type of joint, or just so you can get to high steer, properly?

Our morning ride was great. I capped my afternoon off with Scott, and a cj with coilovers at the 40 section. Love that part of the park! Big boulders and extreme obstacles  //SLAMIN//

High steer would be the main objective and if I can do it and upgrade the strength of my knuckle then that's even better. It's a nice to have not need to have.

Would you be able to get double sheer out of it?  The guys on Pirate are not a fan of the drag link on top and tie rod on bottom of single sheer.

I also noticed a Moses' laws view on the use of Safety Washers on heims (thou shalt always use safety washers....).  Their concern is that if the heim joint separates (two and three piece design comes apart) the joint can simple slide over the bolt/nut head and you're screwed.

Park was in Awesome condition this morning. It rained just enough last night to knock all the dust down.

My group at 9 am was advance trail. Only had two trail fest people and everybody else was GATR. It was pretty cool. We ran GWT then 56 and finished with 41.

Morning run was awesome.

Tony and I had one of the afternoon groups with way too many rigs. We made the most of it.

It was nice having Mark A riding shotgun so we could pass the time talking.

Great day Saturday, conditions were awesome.  Thanks for the ride John, enjoyed it.

What axle do you have in the front?
