i see a lot of fail coming from your brain. how exactly could i explain it more than you see in the pic? its got 2 brackets welded to the tie rod, then the hiem joint is sandwiched between the brackets. works just as good as the arm

Looks good but, what I think ckupq is seeing is the bracket between the tire and the leaf spring. The bracket looks like you will have very limited turning as in it will hit the leaf before you get your full steer.

yes it does look like that, but we maxed out the turning radius and then welded that bracket on. that way we made sure i wasnt going to hit it at full steer
