Tractor Steering

Was thinking about using case steering joints on the crawler. Anyone got any thoughts and feelings on that? Has it been done before? Heard a rumor about people using them for 4 link suspension this true? Just thought I'd take it to the next level of overkill.

Not sure what the advantage would be. Maybe you can get them real cheap? Unless you are building a rig that will weigh in at over 10,000 pounds. I have never seen a "standard size" joint fail, that is in good condition.

On the other hand you would get that cool factor. I mean hell my friend and I are using a set of a 80,000 GVW coal truck. Because we got a bunch of them for free.
