SpiderTrax C`s/Knuckles & Steering Stops

Did a Google Image search. Found one picture of what I think might be a tube welded to the knuckle to act as a threaded portion of a steering stop. Hard to tell because it wasn't very clear where the stop would, well stop on the C.

Don't want the gearbox to be my stop so I am looking for some information on what others have done.

Front side of the knuckle is clear but the back side has the caliper to contend with. Using a brake setup from Blaine and the caliper is a bit larger than the Wilwood`s that SpiderTrax offers. I know the opposite knuckle could be a stop but that still transmits the load through the linkage.

Surely someone in PBB has done a stop set up. Care to share ?

Was looking at a pic yesterday of erik Milllers front end (I think) and we where having this exact conversation.

It was a tube, with a bolt and a jam nut, welded to the knuckle, and there was a triangular piece of steel welded to the inner C to contact on.

Edit........Found a pic, not the one I was looking at, but you can see it.

Thanks Spidr

This is very similar to the pic I found on Google. Think that axle build was a work in progress as there was no stop on the C for the bolt head.

Realize this isn't rocket science but it never hurts to see what some of the others are doing. I suspect Erik has a similar setup in the rear of the knuckle that works around the caliper.

The ability to weld and fab on the SpiderTrax stuff is one reason I have been drawn to them.

Surprises me to no end those that neglect a positive stop and let the linkage and gearbox take all the beating.

I would like to see more examples also. Soon to be building stops on my nines.

I know factory stops are on the front, but is there any advantage to having rear vs front or both.
