It was designed for the EB and it looks like the ends are below and the drag link is on top. Email Anthony Terry and ask him about running it knuckle under. It should be doable.

I'm going to be running that setup for my F-150 here very soon, and from what I've read on his site, you can run either. I'm thinking of running them on top, unless someone advises otherwise....

I have been hearing that if you run it on top it will put alot of stress on the bolt where the draglink and tirerod meet.

That's my main concern too, but from what I'm led to believe is that it can take the stress. I'd be interested to hear if anyone has run them on top and broken that bolt...

Maybe a "high steer" arm would work if you have a flat top knuckle.

I have been running the performance unlimited rock proof on top of my EB for about a year and a half with no probs turning 35's and stock EB PS. The only thing I've noticed is that the jamb nuts on the tie rod came loose after my first run. Since then theyve been tightened and locktited and have been fine.

Got the stone crusher on tonight. A very nice kit, easy to put on and well built.Even looks to good to be on my ugly rig.I didn't put it on top. He told me when I ordered it that with only the 2 inch lift I have it would more than likely cause some bad bump steer.Due to the change in the angel between the trac bar and drag link. I think he said it's best to have at least 3.5 inch lift to run it on top.Any way this is a nice kit and would buy it again.

Thats correct, only if both the tie rod and drag link are put on top.
the best setup is tie rod on bottom and drag link on top
