Steering setup w/ Waggy springs

Just had a question about if I can still run my steering setup, I am runnin a waggy 44 with chevy flat tops and using parts mike steering arms which use TRE's to run and inverted T over the spring, now my question is can i run that setup if I do the shackle reversal and use the front waggy springs, can I still run the steering over the springs or no?? I tried a search but found nothing on this. Thanks

Not enough info

Are you movin the axle forward? If so, how much?
How close are your tie rod & drag link @ the pitman with your current setup?

Just look @ your current setup & you should see if it will work with your planeed mods.

I would guess you are moving the axle forward enough to cause binding. You can move your steering box forward. Or you can move the axle far enough so you can attatch the dag link to the back side of the tie rod instead of the front (probably ~4"). You would then have to have the 2233 TRE tapered the other way.

I hear ya on the not enough info.. The thing is I have nothing setup right now I am still in project mode I was just wondering if I would have to scrap the knuckles and steering arms that I got being that they may cause bind with the waggy springs. I got these arms thinking I was just gonna run regular Yj springs but now i want to extend the WB and was wondering if I can still use that inverted T setup with the waggy springs cause thearms I got were to clear 2inch Yj springs now if I run the SR and waggy springs I wonder if it will still work.
