You won't like the quality of your steering with an inverted y setup under a JK.

going with coils still, as i cant afford coil overs yet. in the future yes, but not now.


and yea, i know i wont like it straight to the tie rod, so i was thinking 1 of 2 things.
1. invert the mount to the tie rod, so it levels out the drag link more. and is basically connected to the tie rod by a large bolt. (doesnt seem like all that strong, but the bolt will only be like 3 inches long or something nothing major)
2. do a D60 "high steer" where it attaches to the knuckle with a long piece so the drag link isnt attached to the tie rod directly.

i dont want to get that "dead spot" like older wranglers have.

edit:

i will also be getting hydro steering very soon, as i keep blowing steering pumps. and will be moving up in tire size soon.

If you're going with the factory suspension setup how are you planning to fit all the brackets on the drivers side? Those newer balljoint 60's leave no room for bracketry, and you're definitely not going to be welding to the cast diff housing. Just looking at the picture you posted you're going to be in for some fun.

Looking for: 03-06 interior plastic trim. PM me.

yea, id prefer a 78 or 79 king pin. BUT, my original idea, was to create a truss that would be giving me a 2" lift or so. that went across the entire axle top. that way, i can have the upper control arm mounts put in the right spots. and will have a better surface for for putting my coil mounts.

You can cut some of the cast off the driver's side. There is tube underneath. I just bought some tires from a local JK owner with a SD Ford 60 up front. He did a great job and that's how he addressed it.

diff fluid is my #1 most hated thing to work on, just a drop on you, and you smell like crap forever. luckily my fluid was only 10k miles old, it was just full of water and mud.

I actually like the smell of new gear oil. The old stuff that hasn't been changed in 10 years and is so full of metal its grey sludge like what you have is what I can't stand. That stuff reeks.
