The knuckle almost has to be twisted/bent for it to do that proving you tie rod didn't try to pull apart and gain length

Take some pics of the drivers and passengers knuckle. This is weird-ish.

Its almost like the spindle shaft is bent at the upright or the upright is twisted.

Buy some aftermarket knuckles when you do your full hydro and don't worry about it again


That or adjust the Tie Rod..........since it's adjustable

LOL, ok, gimmie your credit card number and I'll get em ordered! I am considering this for the future future.

As far as the tie rod, I tried to adjust it yesterday but my jamb nut was too tight lol, I quit on it figured I better at least try to figure out what it changed.

I'm guessing the money spent on rig #2 was more than enough to cover those knuckles I can only afford one rig so technically, you should order 2 sets of knuckles and send me one of them

With how twisted the sector shaft was.... watch your video from unemployed. I bet you started the break and probably bent the knuckle at the second turn first lap. You can see the wheel is cut left and you get stopped dead in your tracks. Then on the second lap you did the exact same thing but this time it gave. Lucky that knuckle stayed on the axle from the video.

I planned on upgrading mine eventually, and I would do it sooner then later if I wasn't about to drop a bunch of $ on tires I'd just sell you mine .

I have 78/79 knuckles, hydro arms, and brakes you could use. Only issue is that I cut the tie rod arm off so you would have to buy a passenger hi-steer are that has 2 holes to run cross over steering. The knuckles are spares now and I wont need the other parts until spring anyway.
