  • Steering: Heim vs TRE

    After pushing in and destroying our steering this weekend, a friend and I put high-steer to the top of our list of must do.

    Our biggest debate right now is whether to use Heim joints or TRE?

      Going for a hi-steer cross over desgin, nothing very orginal.

      Have not worked out exactly how we are going to fab and mount hi-steer arms onto D30 knuckle.

      If we go tre's the design will be very similiar to what Erik did on his YJ.

      Be using 1.5 DOM with .25 Wall. Not sure if we are going to sleeve a smaller tube inside or not. A lot of this is still in the air as we have not nailed anything down yet.

          My friend Kirk is going to cut his off completely as his Grand Cherokee is 90% trail and he has not had his swaybar connected in years.

          Since mine is a daily driver, we know we have to relocate them, somewhere.

          The plan is to do the grand cherokee first and work out all the bugs. This will hopefully minimize down time for mine. Next time I crawl under the front, I am going to do some test fitting with wooden dowel to get an idea of how everything is going to fit. My first idea is to fab some taller sway bar mounts to clear everything.

            Any feedback on the jb bracket for the D30?

            I was thinking of trying it and then flipping the tie rod above the knuckle using goferit bushings. This would be a low cost high steer design.
