I did the over the center adjustment. Its the bolt on the top of the steering box. Then I rotated the tires and greased up the bushings in the front end. Feels very tight now. Not sure where i want to go with this build right now

Ironman arms are 10% off until
The first of the year. Saves $60 which is really nice. Not sure how long they will be doing free shipping though. The Clayton crossmember is $300 flat from Kolak.

As far as IRO, due to their while 'you have to bend the drag link' thing I would double check that the JCR steering will work.

The only reason you gotta bend it is it rubs, is the sway bar link...

But if you get otk steering from anyone except iro, you have to move them anyways ..so it's a moot point. But well noted man.
