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
seeing as the misalignment spacers wont fit in two of the heims... 5/8 heims are for the tie rod, 3/4" heims with misalignment spacers are for the drag link, where you need the misalignment. 5/8" bolt through it all... its really not that hard to figure out.

relocate the trackbar bracket and fab a new trackbar correcting trackbar/drag link angles.
cut off the swaybar links and relocate if you wish.

I knew the heims were different just unsure where the misalignment spacers went but after some reading online I figured it out. I ended up having bigbchevy put 2 small bend in the tube to get it away from everything. Now it clears everything and I didn't have to move them.

I was unsure whether or not I wanted to spend the money and do all that work on this axle at the time. Got this kit for cheaper than ZJ or rugged ridge steering

I've been listening to everyone's advice didn't do a 5.3 because I don't have the money

Did you ever wheel the mounds with the TJ stock? I think it was me and a friend that pulled you out becase you got stuck in the ruts between the power lines and the rocks course. This was a few years back.

You were trying to use the stock jack to lift the tj body up to get stuff underneath the tires...
