Front axle upper link bracket

Thanks

Its mounting angle is partly dictated buy link calculator geometry

As long as you clear everything it should be fine. I like the look of a straighter up and down but sometimes it can conflict with steering links or hit the oil pan. Whats your separation between the uppers and lowers? Looks like the lower mounts could be angled down just a bit more.

5.5 seperation on the axle, its tilted down to clear the steering and to get it to 25". At that height my AS is around 80%. If i tilt it forward to say 26" on the lower bolt hole my AS goes to around 100%. Frame side upper bracket it pretty much fixed postition.

I would work on getting more separation unless you are running 28" tires. A 36" tire should be around 8" of separation. If your upper frame location is fixed I would try and get the upper close to level and make your AS adjustments with the lower arm geometry. Do you have a target AS #?

Iv always avoided angling them like that for the sole reason that changing hole positions will change your pinion angle considerably and you may or may not be able to adjust it out with your heims. If clearance is an issue or that is what you want for geometry then look for and offset style link mount.

I was told to shoot for 80 so I’m trying to get it adjustable from 80 to 100. I really didn’t think about if I had to adjust as your right in that I would basically have to build a new arm. Ill play with it this week and see what I come up with. On another note, is 4 degrees of roll over steer bad in the front
