Instead of using the tie-in between the arm and factory location for the steering heim to connect, he would use the red spot I made. Better Ackerman than the stock location. And I might be wrong but I think if you want to run a tie rod with full hydro, they need to mount at the same locations, usually one over the other. If not, then I think they'll fight eachother because they'd be trying to impose different amounts of Ackerman.so pardon the ignorance, is that like what TC is doing where he's running a tie rod in addition to the ram? i'm confused how that will help if you hit a tree doing mach jesus
Plenty of stuff runs a tie rod with a de ram. I think the first time I seen it was on a Kodiak fertilizer spreader truck when I was a kid.
I don't know about better.
But your understanding of Ackerman is correct.
are you worried about welding it 4 times that the heat weakened anything?
You are correct. It seems that most believe that positive ackerman is ideal, but there are definite arguments for parallel or reverse (negative). Im interested to learn from your experience, on which you feel works the best, as much of the calculations and discussion is around street/race cars.
he bought new inner Cs. The "Ultimate Dana 60" Cs that Dana uses on their crate axles.It may have been covered but was money the reason you just didn't go with all kingpin? You saved on not having to replace the inner Cs.
