Once you convert to crossover steering there is no need for the rod. The rod limites rotation. With push pull steering, axle rotation causes brake steer (to the right). With crossover steering axle rotation does not affect the drag link and so does not cause brake steer like the stock setup.Originally posted by Rocman:
