I know what you mean but haven't looked in to it too much. I dont think you can put enough forward bend in it to clear. If you could find an offset tie rod to drop the shank down it would clear but then you are loosing the height that you are trying to gain, by the time you drop it down enough to clear the draglink with off set tie rod ends you may as well keep it on the bottom with offset tie rod end to lift it.Have you looked into some of the factory Jeep tierod ends... JK,WJ, or others and reversing, flipping, or putting a bend in the tierod end itself to create enough clearance around the bottom of the draglink's tre nut?
That jeep is about 10 months old. We live near the ocean and people often take it to the dunes and dont rinse it off after. It is just surface rust since they do not paint those parts.Hey Goat,
What year JK is in that pic with the tire rod? I bought an '08 JK and I have just about the same amount of rust in the exact same area (except it appears to be on all four ends of both axles). I just wondering if everyone has rust in the same exact place as me (and does anyone else think it's odd to have heavily rusted components on a brand new JK)?
X2 But I painted mine, I don't mind dents and scrapes, but I just don't like seeing rust, even surface rust.it off after. It is just surface rust since they do not paint those parts.
