Currie Steering..Savvy Steering, old tie rod

If I switch to one of these options, will I be able to use the stock tie rod as a back up or spare?

I think if you break that steering you have more serious issues. I really wouldn't know if you can use it, but I will assume yes and say that I am 100% sure that I am 100% uncertain. I would like to know than answer, so I am subscribing.

^^^ why did you get rid of the duck?

If so congrats

I will tackle that one part at a time.

Why did I get rid of the duck? I was excited about the Rubi. I don't even think you really know where that is from anyway.

Am I a student that stirs up JF? I am a student of two different places at times. Right now, I am a student of one. JF continually teaches me new things. Yes, in the regular respect, I am a student. The break between semesters happens to be right now.

So, why the useless post?

Bump for real answers. I would imagine Gerald or Blaine will be in here soon enough.

You won't be able to use the stock tie rod as a spare. The tie rod ends that come with the Currie steering system are much much larger and more heavy duty. They look like they belong under full sized 1-ton truck. When I got my Currie steering I sold my stock drag link and tie rod on Ebay.

Did you have to ream out the knuckle for that? I was under the assumption that you didn't, and that is why I thought it might.

Nope! No reaming necessary Complete bolt in. The stock tie rod won't be able to screw onto the much larger threads on the Currie rod ends.

EDIT: I guess he could use his stock tie rod as a spare... but he would also have to have the stock TREs too.

OK, so it was the way I thought it was. I know he wouldn't have been able to use the tie rod without the old ends. I thought when you said no, you meant that there was physically no way because stuff changed.

Yea though I guess he could use his stock tie rod with the stock TREs. I would imagine the stock TRE would fit into the Currie drag link since the Currie tie rod ends are the same.

Thanks for the info and help, just trying to decide what I want to do next.

Ok I see what you are attempting here, but it is going to take many years of practice to get the Blaine thing down, you are not quite there, but keep learning.

LuckRider not trying to pick on you, I admire your dedication to posting,learning helping etc.


Now can I ask, in your opinion what order of importance would you place the following changes? armor underneath, anti rock, rocker panel protection, steering upgrade

That would seem to be an obvious one...

I'd focus on stuff that would keep you from getting home. Armor gas tank, engine (tt prehaps?), radiator, and steering skid. Don't overlook diff covers and lower CA mounts. Then, steering upgrade or carry spare(s). The anti-rock would be last on that list.

Believe me, I wasn't trying to do the Blaine thing. I could never pull it off. He is to blunt

As for order, I would say that needs to be evaluated by what kind of wheeling you would do. Since I had an accident on road I am almost positive was caused by steering, I would say that. Then things to get you home like armor underneath (radiator, lower CA mounts). I wouldn't worry sop much about your gas tank skid unless it is rusted out because even if you dent and abuse it to the point where you can only get 13 gallons in a 19 gallon tank, you can still get home. If you rip off a CA or punch a hole in the radiator, then you are screwed.
