help with tie rod flip kit.

put the flip kit in, draglink hit the pitman arm at flex. put stock p-arm back on and it still hits a little. did i miss something? i drilled out the knuckles and draglink holes, welded the goferit sleeves in, bolted in, put stock p-arm on.

Have a picture? Since the drag link is attached to the pitman arm, I'm having a hard time understanding what you mean by it hitting the pitman arm.

Here's a picture of my steering setup when I was making these changes a couple of years ago.



With the Gogerit flip kit, I needed to relocate the steering damper & track bar, but otherwise nothing else was in the way. Here's a picture of the drag-link to tie-rod connection - I can't see where you would get it to bind, maybe you could post a picture.

what did you do to relocate the trac bar? I see the raised bracket but how did you attach it? I want to get an adjustable one but the trac bar bolt is in the way, I thought about maybe trying to weld a bracket to it. I prefer the way it handled on the road with the trac bar.

Drag link hitting tierod. No such thing as a lower draglink.

No idea why it would be hitting. I run the goferit flip kit with no issues. Are you sure that is the stock pitman and not one that it longer than stock?

Gogerit flip kit

Who sells this kit and what is included in it? I want to put my tie rods on top of the steering knuckles and eliminate the tie rod ends to go with spherical ends on all the steering linkage. Has anyone made this type of change? The spherical ends are much stronger than stock.
