steering ram placement?

Seen a few mounted on a reinforced diff cover. I was also thinking about trying to weld the tabs on the outside of the steering dampner bracket and using the tie rod clamp or welding the tabs on the tie rod. Is there any problem with running it above the axle? Because of the coils, I have nearly no clearance behind the tie-bar at full turn.

Any idea's would be appreciated. Thanks, Joe

That seems to all I can find examples of, Leaf sprung setups. Did a bunch of searching, Does anyone have any examples of steering ram placement on coil sprung axles? Just don't have a lot of room to work with. Any ideas would apreciated. Thanks, Joe
