Ive got a mockup of my front disc brake adapter bracket. I think it came out pretty good on the first try. Time to find a machine shop that can make me some brackets that wont break the bank.

I love this build, but that steering setup you've put together looks pretty shady.

You mentioned the drag link end hits the wheel/tyre, does that tower of death not hit the spring pack when you turn left?

Probably needs some decent steering arms mounted to the top knuckle bearing cap and tied back into the original arms to get the tie rod above the springs?

believe me, I know its shady, and im not too proud of it. but its definitely not going to break. it doesnt hit the springs on left turn, i made sure of it before welding it all together. i did think of doing a steering arm bolted to the top of the knuckle, but theres not enough of a stud to fit a nice thick steering arm on. the wheels I test fit also might not be the wheels I wind up going with anyways. Either way, ill just have to test it all out as a whole once everything is done and sitting on the ground ready to go.

with a project so custom, its hard to tell sometimes if something is going to work without spending a ton of money on "research" and testing. I dont have those funds, so I wing it and see if it works or not, and if it doesn't, I go from there lol.

Longer studs with cone washers would be the go...

Does the drag link rock the tie rod forward/back when you cycle the steering under load?
Will wander pretty good going down the road if it does.

can those bearing cap studs be replaced that easily? are they not welded in? and why a cone washer?

I think it might some. I have yet to do any real testing on it. I hate that the OEM patrol drag link is unable to be adjusted for length to set alignment. I might just go with a whole aftermarket tie rod and drag link kit eventually.
