Sorry, any place that makes a "bolt on SOA kit" loses me right away.
Not to mention the FACT that if your leaf springs ride higher due to the perches or leaf packs, that driver side tie rod is going to hit the pack etc. Looks like the main way that their kit will work is by using their "bolt on SOA kit". Not for me, sorry.
Look at that steering kit, then look at most front ends that have had a SOA job done to them. Wont look as peachy then IMHO.
Probably works good for SOME setups, but certainly not all setups.
We could have flipped the tie rod on Daves, but the Old Man Emu springs have a flat spot on the bottom of them that can interfere with the tie rod when flexed.
I like to make the stuff, to both save some coin and make it to suit my exact needs. That kit would hit the spring plates or U bolts on my setup, and I would never think twice of using a cheaper spring perch or U bolt just to run their steering.
Just my .02, but when you look into the products themselves, the sales crap starts to look a little tainted most of the time doesnt it?

thats a steering kit not a SOA kit... you bolt there adapter to your steering knuckle so you get a true over the top steering configuration..

Yes I saw that.
I said "any place that makes a bolt on soa kit" which they do. You can see it in those pictures, and in their web store
They used to advertise on Fleaby a lot, don't know if they still do or not.
Like I said, any place that thinks a bolt on SOA kit is the bee's knee's loses me right off the bat I'm afraid.
