Hello guys. Ive got a good question. Is there a way to make a high steer knucle for an soa converison. My freind is giving me 2 dana 30 knuckles so now i have 4 dana 30 knucles and now i want to know is there any way to make a high steer knucle. Like cut the arm off and raise it then weld it back on?? Any ideas. Or should i just drop the whole idea?
Also what is the year the cherokee had the high steer knuckle on it? and is that knuckle bolt on for dana 30?
I don't remember the year, but suposedly there is a cherokee/grand cherokee knuckle that you can swap, that has a raised arm on the passanger side knuckle. granted, it would only move the drag link up, but it might be an option for you.

Welded steering parts are not only unsafe, but illegal as well. Welding cast for steering is extremely unsafe.
If you want high steer on a D30, you need to buy a new knuckle, or use the bracket.

youll notice its NOT welded onto the knuckle.. you drill and tap the knuckle an use bolts.. very stout setup

alright i wont weld! it was only a thought... but i like the idea ok the jb brakcet. I want to move the draglink over the suspension and not the tie rod. And I would love to have that year the cherokee had the high steer setup on it, Maybe somebody will chime in and help me out.

I'm bummed nobody was able to answer the GC high steer question. I've got a GC high steer knuckle sitting in my garage right now waiting for me to figure out which tie rod and drag link I need to use on it. Obviously the stock tie rod and drag link are too short, and if I knew the year of the GC that had this knuckle I could look at replacement parts under that year model. I'd rather not use the teraflex unit as I'd prefer steel that far forward and south...
Not Smart enough to keep them, not smart enough to stop buying more
