Realistically I have 2 options.

1. Go back to stock steering. That solves all of the steering to track bar geometry.

-cons: It increases the severity of the steering/track bar angle. I would need to buy a 4th pitman arm and tie rods, because mine is already reemed for the larger tie rod. Or have the drag link reemed to match the pitman. And it doesn’t look as cool. :cool:

2. Make a bracket thats a bit unorthodox. Weld a good section to the axle tube, and utilize the original bolt to combat the leverage on the raised side of the mount. Made another detailed CAD drawing to illustrate.
-cons: strength maybe?

Welded section is illustrated by the blue marks.

10 or 15 years ago Mike and I had a bronco 2 we put an early bronco straight axle under, we kept the lower track bar mount and made an upper mount from something ruff stuff had on the shelf. As far as the steering I forget what we did but we arc welded that bitch together in my Dads barn in Williams and wheeled the shit out of it on the Rubicon for a couple years. If he doesn't chime in hit him up maybe he has pictures or pointers. It was very simple and functional but I have burned a lot of brain cells since then so its fuzzy.
