    Default Dana 44 upgrade/steering arm issue

    I'm almost complete with my dana 44 swap out. However, I'm having an issue with the tie rod. This axle has a high steer convrsion, when the tie rod is bolted into the top of the steering arms the track bar conflicts with it. Mounted below the steering arms the diff and spring mounts are an issue. Also, the track bar is in the way in either configuration for my lower anti rock mounts. The best way to solve it would be to have longer steering arms, several people have said there out there but I haven't had any luck in finding them. Other then bending the tie rod at each end has anyone come across another way to solve this issue?

    Try Jim's OffRoad, near you in KY. They should be able to find a solution.
