Post Just finished up my high steer setup.

Moved from my old heim setup to TRE's and completely above the springs:



In case you are not familiar with my Jeep's color scheme...I call it "bruise" ... black, gray, blue... <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

More pics at my web site link listed in the signature below.

Wow that looks close to the springs... no clearance problems on full drop, full left lock?

About an inch space at rest...seemed like about 1/2 - 3/4" at full droop. Thinking about making some 1/2" blocks to go under those arms...but will wait to see what happens on the first run.

Brimy311,

The TRE's are '85 Blazer TRE's. 7/8-18 thread. The tubing is not MORE tubing any longer. I am using that stuff for my anti-wrap bar now...look for that post later tonight (just finished it).

The tie-rod and drag link tubes are actually '85 Blazer tie-rod tubes. They are tapped left hand and right hand already. I just cut them down to length on the right hand side (since left hand taps in that size are hard to find). Then tapped the cut down end with 7/8-18 right hand thread.

Sweet arms, know anyone running relocated arms (other than M.O.R.E.) on TJ 30 outers. I have a custom setup which is working great but would like to improve on it a bit. I need to get the holes in the knuckles out further to run a tie-rod knuckle to knuckle that will clar my diff (44 housing w/ 30 kunckles).
