No amazing update... Been working full time getting my house ready for renters.
However, I did contact Bfab and talked to him a good bit and decided to buy his WIY swing set steering

The parts look well manufacturered

Does the Baker Fab kit facilitate straight tierods? Looks like it...

Wait a tick—You’re renting the house you just bought? Becoming a slum lord?
Yeah buddy! I referbished the lower "house/storage" into a liveable space and did a whole overhaul on the big house and I'm now renting it out for the cost of my Morgage + Utilities. It's a pretty decent deal. They said I was the best slum Lord they ever dealt with hahahaha!

The pics he has on his IG are with straight tie rods so I'm sure I can massage them into what I need!

The swing steering is on there.
The passenger side tire rod went together beautifully! I'll barely have to clearance the crossmember


at almost full bump I still have room to spare


That's lock to lock


But the other side...

Full droop

Only half way compressed already hitting the driver side swinger.
Aaaaaaaand it hits the pitman arm

I moved some things around, tried moving the pass side swinger up/down/side to side... This is the best I got
But I'm still having clearance issues




What I'm thinking is...

Re do the swinger with the triangle on the other side,
and perhaps relocate the shock back more.

Also, I've noticed the resting 'straight ahead tires' position of the swingers are out further from the frame rails. Do I need to make the tie rods and center cross bar longer?
