That's a gross oversimplification but it should give you the general idea and I don't feel like typing it all out on a smart phone.
Glad you didn't. What you typed I understood. If you got all technical on me I would have been staring at my monitor with that slack jawed look thinking huh.

Here is my theory on the height priced CL junk. Some people price things correctly, and they sell really fast. The high priced junk sits forever therefor concentrating the number of stupid posts. When looking for something specific, I check often and make a deal and go asap.

I haven't driven it in months

Oh and I have a set of 18" JK Sahara wheels and tires for sale $2,000 OBO

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

I know you're joking but I keep thinking about how I paid 500 for a set of 4 cragar soft 8's mounted with Michelin LTX A/T 2's so new they still had the blue on the label and all the little injection molding needles still on the tread.

And I see the forum has gotten even worse since I've been gone. I haven't logged in since May and now it's stuck with an even worse mobile site and won't let me revert back to the enhanced view or desktop view

That's why I kept the ancient non-tapatalk app that hasn't been updated in ages. The apk is probably still out there for download somewhere.

Looks a little like the rig on YouTube that the guy set off the
40lbs. of tannerite in.

Essentially, when an electrical field is passed through a solid piece of metal there is no place for the current to "leak"; however, if there is a crack somewhere the current leaks, i.e. crack in the metal, and attracts the metal shavings you pour over the item and you will see where they collect. Some type of coloring comes to mind but it's been 30+ years since I've run a magnaflux machine and I'm sure there are new technologies.

Serious question for the Crown steering owners:
All the pics I've seen seems to show the tie rod coming forward to clear the diff, then the bend reaching rearward to come back to the knuckle. But with the fixed joint(that connects to the drag link) in proper position, my tierod seems to reach downward with the bend then reaching upward toward the knuckle. I haven't installed anything yet, just curious if this will all work itself out properly.

Some of them use a ferrofluid, some of them still use shavings. Whatever they use it's just a way of showing where a magnetic field is being created by the current. Your explanation was a lot better though.
