  • yj steering upgrade

    well, this is my next upgrade.my last run through "nailer wash" smashed my steering stabilizer all to hell, and bent my tie rod.
    so... rather than replacing this again, i am going to upgrade to a different system.
    i have done a bit of research on this, and decided that the most cost effective, and strongest steering arangement i can adapt to my dana 30 is as follows.

    A very popular Inverted T setup is to use '85 Chevy Blazer steering joints and custom tubes.
    parts i will need for my application: per the pirate thread.

    ES2233L mounted to steering arm, with stock steering stabilizer hole re-tapered so that ES2234R on end of draglink will fit to it.

    ES2234R of tie rod attached to drivers side steering arm.

    ES2027L at Pitman arm

    GM P/N's for the jam nuts (discontinued)

    14024806
    14024805
    And all of these are 7/8-18" on the threaded ends

    a stock pitman arm, and a universal steering stabilizer.
    DOM tubing, what diameter?
    .
    now i am still in the research phase here...
    so dont run out and buy this stuff until i have it on my rig, and tested out.

    BEAR IN MIND THAT THE PICS POSTED ARE BORROWED FROM ANOTHER FORUM, AND ARE USING A DANA 44.

    i will be taper drilling my dana 30 knuckles to receive the new TRE's, and have to taper drill the one tre to receive the drag link end.

                    This is the same problem that it was before. i have no idea what it is, but i'm pretty sure it is on your end. a firewall, perhaps?
                    is there any one else that cant see the pictures?
                    weird
                    well, i picked up the TRE'S this morning. these things are BEEF!

                      give it another try, brian. i have completely disabled the hotlink protection. if you still can not see them, it is most certainly something on your end.
                      please let me know.
                      also, if you could please pm me the link in your browser when you are viewing this page.
                      thanks

                        gosh, erik, you act like people are soooo interested in STEALING your photos!


                        with the script you're using can you specify "friendly" sites? if not, i have one that you can.

                          yes, sarah... i can specify which sites can link them, and everyone else can not.
                          there are a very few people that can not see them on the designated sites, and i honestly dont understand why that is.
                          my uneducated guess would be some sort of firewall, or protective parental controls. :confused:

                            I can see it all now. I didn't change anything on my end (didnt even so much as re-boot my computer). :confused:

                            Comcast recently did some work on their end, and it seems to have solved the problem I have had with them for the past 9 or 10 months (dropping IP's when I upload info to the 'net).

                              Using the blazer knuckles does this mean you are going to have to cut off the knuckle joint on your dana30 housing to weld in the blazer jiont. My dana44 axle tube is 2 1/2" od and 1/2" wall. I'm not sure how you make the connection.
