Default OTK 1 ton steering for scout 44's on my Cherokee

I have '90 Cherokee sport with scout 44's. The previous owner did the passenger to driver drop conversion and JANKED up the steering in order to make it work. The tie rod itself has a bracket welded on the passenger tie rod end to make it clear the bracket that was included for the track bar, and it needs tie rod ends replaced, but I also want to do a 1 ton OTK steering upgrade. The rod ends already go into the knuckle from the top, does that mean its already over the knuckle? I wanna buy a kit, should I get a kit for a jeep, or a kit for a Dana 44?

If your going to buy a kit it needs to be for the 44
Or you buy a DIY kit from like rough stuff and just do some cutting and welding

herp derp... yes, yes it does.







the important part is to figure out what taper your current rod ends use. if its not already GM 1 ton, youll also have to ream out the knuckles.
