    if you have the option of moving the trac bar mount, in order to match the drag link angle, I would definitely do it.
    after spending the time and money your going to be, why not set it up properly?

    you want the trac bar length and angle to match (as closely as reasonable) the length and angle of the drag link (from pitman arm to knuckle)
    keep in mind simply matching the bars parallel to each other may cause binding problems when you flex the pass. side down (depending on what links you use, IE heims, TRE's). the bars don't need to mirror each other, but if you draw an imaginary line from each link (frame to axle) those distances/angles should match closely. so if you need to put a bit of a bend in the trac bar to keep the heims flat at ride height it's no problem, or to make it fit around the pumpkin/oil pan when stuffing.

    plenty of really good set-ups to look at if you look around on here or other sites, pics are worth a thousand words as they say.



    as for the reamer, check princess auto every now and then they have them, and on sale too.
    insert something witty here

    i got the tnt with the tb in the stock location... regreting it now..
    i was going to use stock steering set up but the stock holes have been drilled out in the stock spot... so now going to use hi steer .. same cost for all the steel and tie rods just a coulpe bucks more for the arms

    i was thinking about the flip kit for the steering where ya weld in the sleave.. that any good

    i just don't think i need to go all the way to high steer.. only running 6" +/- of lift

    good call.. there is 100 different post on the lift hight

    i just messed up on the tb order,, should of got the tnt with the hi steer set up..
    so the agles are going to be way off between the tb and the steering .. how close do they need to be.. i really don't want to cut a brand new truss apart
