Default Ruffstuff 3/4" heim steering

Who's running this on there d30?

Do the 5/8" or 3/4" heims get used for the tie rod? Where did you use the misalignment spacers?

Seems like no matter what setup I go with the tube will hit on the trac bar bracket or sway bar. What did you guys do to correct this pics would be appreciated

Thanks

You really are a glutton for punishment aren't you? I'll try to be constructive here, did you maybe call ruffstuff and ask how they should be and how it should be set up? I think they would know best.

I haven't yet plan to call them tomorrow if their open. I didn't realize until today that the kit had 2 different size rod ends. Was hoping someone who had already installed this could be of help

I've had this steering kit since Thanksgiving and my rugged ridge steering was bent and all tie rod ends were shot. Can you guys be helpful instead of criticizing everything I do

It would be alot easier if you didn't bounce all over the place with different ideas, start multiple threads about the same thing and generally act like you don't pay attention.

God this kid is unbelievable, I would love to meet this guy in person. I'm sure I would feel like the smartest guy in the world after listening to this dumb ass ramble on for 20 minutes. Here's my advise. Just get as many credit cards as you can and start buying all these parts you want. Problem solved

No, you're too retarded for help, you ignore it all. Why should anyone offer you advice and help?

I'm not. I've had this steering for awhile finally putting it on and have some questions I don't see whats so wrong about that. I have paid attention to every single helpful information I've been given. I have one thread about this steering kit and everyone has to be a dick instead of helping
