The chain keeps the rod clevis out out the leaf spring most of the time, and the Tie rod is bent shaped to protect the Cyl. You can kind of see it in this picture.

The Tie rod is plenty heavy enough.

First two pics are My first attempt on my old ramcharger cabtruck, worked awesome and never had an issue..Had to upgrade the tie rod to 2 1/4" 1/4 wall dom..But I never had a binding issue.Just a shame this was on a 44

Last pics are the new setup. Hated to rig it up like that but the truck was wedged between a metal rack and a drain pipe.It doesn't bind but the pins loose the slight slop they have at full lock..Just had it out for 6 hrs and it did pretty well.

Nothing special on the axle end, but I got sick of 1/8" tube pinch clamps stretching and coming loose.





3/8" ram mount tabs, 1/2" pinch plates, 2.25x.250wall tube, 1.75" 7075 tierod

Essentially Offroad set up this for me - 2" aluminum tie rod with a .25" step machined to accept a 1.75" tube clamp - simple mount welded to the truss for the fixed end

Rear was simple just used a low steer right off the tube and cover.

I started out with a clamp on the tie rod but the tie rod would work it self loose and then the ram would drop down lower. I also lost some ram travel with the pivot of the heims through the steering cycle.

The fix:

so do you think it is better to mount the ram to the tie rod or to the high steer arm? have seen them both ways. seems like if you mount to the high steer arm you can adjust it to make it faster or slower depends on how far out you mount it on the arm.

I'd be afraid of the tall single shear on the axle side,

Honestly, I think its way better to mount the cylinder to the arms and not the tie rod. Mounting to the arms, you don't have to worry about getting the ram parallel to the tie rod so that it won't want to rotate the tierod up and down. You also don't have to worry about any tube clamp slipping as you steer. I set mine up mounted to the tie rod and now I think I'll make another set of arms and mount the ram directly to the arms. Its allways something.

I like mounting to the arms, was just gonna be a ton of work on my rig. BJ knuckles machined, arms made, finding out how to clear the leafs with the ram, etc. I was always worried about the pinch clamp slipping, not anymore with the new one I built.
