all I am going to say is that cyclinder is probably not going to have much force to aid you in turning.

i got that exact ram from Surplus center, I'm adapting it for rod ends. I am running 35s, and WILL NOT go bigger than 35s, so I think it will be fine. I just want a little extra strength in the steering, and more importantly to take some stress off the frame; so I think this will be a good ram for me.

For something with a 60 front and 37s I'd go with a 1.5" bore ram, like this one: http://www.surpluscenter.com/item.as...name=hydraulic or this one: http://www.surpluscenter.com/item.as...name=hydraulic

I measured how much my tie-rod moves from lock to lock on my D44, and the 7.5" stroke of my ram will probably just barely limit my steering angle. Measure from lock to lock at your mounting points to figure out how much travel you need.

here's a thread that I asked about the 1.125x7.5x.75 ram: /forum/newbie-general-4x4-discussion/249847-hydro-assist-has-anyone-used-ram-smaller-than-1-5-a.html

Ok not that I am an expert on steering, but I know alot about Hydraulic systems. As long as the flow volume from the pump remains the same a smaller diameter cylinder will turn the wheels faster but with less power, a larger diameter cylinder will have more power less speed.

Brett M, I just thought I should mention you do not want to have your cylinder limiting your steering in any way, especially at the end of the cylinders stroke. Loaders and dozers all have stops on them to prevent this because cylinders do not like to be over extended. It will eventually take the seals and cap out of the end of the cylinder. If you must use a short cylinder then you are better off to set your stops back alittle more then where the cylinder ends, your best bet is to get a cylinder that has a slightly longer stroke then you need.
