I don't think this will work. Not enough room because of the passenger side and the offset drag link arm. Best you can do is beef it up or do your best to stay off of it. At least this is my two bits on the subject. Someone might have actually been able to wiggle in the rod ends but that would be a squeeze.

Now the drag link on the other hand is totally doable and Poly Performance has it, including the reamer to re-taper the hole.

I have looked at doing that but it is difficult for the reasons MichaelW posted. You could do with with some offset tie rod ends and a flipped draglink but you will not end up raising it much. We do have a heavy duty heat treated chromoly tie rod that you shouldn't have problems bending http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/...cat=710&page=1

Those of you that think you know everything really annoy those of us that do!
