Steering Linkage

Ok, so going high steer with 1 ton TRE's, what would you recommend for links?

Dom? Mild Steel? Find something junkyard that will fit?

for the 7/8-18 shank TRE's I like to use 1.25x.25 DOM drilled slightly over the existing .750" I.D. and then tap the tube itself.

Thats what I use on mine - 4130 tube...

If you've truly got it as high-steer, you probably won't be hitting it on to much, though, see attached pic for reference. You can see the tie rod sticking out the sides above the knuckles. That tie rod has never hit a rock, as far as I have seen, no rock-rash on it. During that same 2 years, I've destroyed one set of spring hangers, dented the last axle housing, in general bashed the the old and new front end.
