Drill the knuckle to 3/4", use a 7/8" Heim with 3/4" ID high misalignment spacers. this heim will NOT thread into your drag link, you have to drill and re-tap one end of your draglink. Just make sure when you are done.. you have a left and right hand thread heims lol. I kept the left hand heim on the pitman arm because its easier to find someone with a right hand tap for the other end of the drag link.

Just use photobucket and tag them on Jeepforum as IMG code links. That's what I've been having to do. Stupid changes.

Ahh yes, the jack stand hovercraft. Looks like progress!

As far as photos, I've always used an outside hosting site, I like it better that way, I can manage my albums and have an online backup to my stuff. I didn't even realize guys direct uploaded until the other day.
