Look at post 20
I am guessing that at 17 years old you want your YJ to be a street and trail rig. There is not a high steer kit from any company that incorporates the proper steering geometry.
You have to make your own.
If you don`t believe me then let`s follow up with the 2 time EMC KOH winning LJ of Savvy and Currie...Gerald Lee and John Currie...... Arguably the most successful TJ/LJ ever. Post 925 has a good picture of the steering set up..
At the expense of loosing a couple inches of ground clearance with the tie rod they thought it to be more important to achieve proper steering geometry.
Here are a few pictures of my set up. Note the tie rod and the SAI (Ackerman) angle. Also the C/L distance of the sector shat to the TRE (pitman arm length) are the same as the ball joint to TRE mount on the high steer arm.
Flat drag link
Again see how the drag link is flat and the Ackerman angle is achieved/maintained ? Also the scrub radius is maintained.
So my tie rod is a couple inches lower. Get over it. The better handling, stability and no bump steer more then make up for it. Intelligent driving keeps the tie rod out of the trail obstacles.
I still have to mount the ram but I am in no hurry. It handles well as it is.
It works for the KOH guys. It`ll work for us low-lifes.
