Steering box relocation bracket question

Question for anyone with a steering box relocation bracket that moves the box 1" forward.

Does anything else need to be bought to install this (axle will already be moved forward) and does it interfere with the stock sway bar at all?

Thanks

Nope, Obviously you'll have to adjust the drag link after

I've been wanting to do this myself. Where did you get the bracket?

I have not bought one yet. I see there are about a half dozen places making them and they are all about the same price (~$120).

Anyone here recommend one over the other? If so why?

I am working on swapping to waggy springs mounted to give a 2" front stretch with no other mods (other than a longer DS and longer brake lines) if that matters. I don't know if I will need the bracket or not but if I do I want to make sure its a smooth deal to buy and install.

Thanks

I have the MORE relocation bracket, makes for a nice HD mount. Much better than the stock steering mount.

The steering column needs to be stretched and being an older vehicle the slip joint is most likely rusted, pain to get it to move.

Ran into some sheetmetal clearance issues under the radiator, this might just be my rig because nothing is straight on the front.

Steering links had some interference. I have a RS and not sure how far the front is moved forward (2" maybe???). Believe the drag and tie rods are 1.25 dia too and all together the steering wouldn't work with a 1/2 Chevy TRE and the draglink thru pass. side TRE. I ended up moving the draglink on top, not recommended but works until I do something else.
Also ended up with a TJ pitman, seem to have misplaced my YJ so can't tell you what the difference is but a Waggy (to long) and XJ (to much drop) wouldn't work.

Ended up breaking one of the captive nuts loose. Drilled thru, sleeved and ran a bolt thru the frame. This sleeve and bolt thru both sides of the frame made it stronger so all good with it.

They say it's a bolt-on but these are issues I ran into. When I was SOA the Waggy pitman arm and high steer worked great mocked up. I went back SUA to lower it and this is when steering issues showed up.

Probably should add, I have a Waggy D44 up front too so the steering arms may be different length causing the steering issues.

I was just going to say, that there are two vendors selling the identical mount as their own. Both are listed on this thread already, so I'll leave it at that.

If you know you're only going an inch by all means get the bracket, it's easy, it bolts on, etc.. I moved mine just shy of 4" forward, I got some bushing sleeves for inside the frame and some threaded bungs and went from there, not difficult but a bit time consuming.
