Is this just with one of those tapered flip inserts on the tie rod to knuckle side? Was thinking of doing the same thing on my Jeep. Did you have to raise the sway bar mount tab?
Drilled knuckle with an insert. Though I cleaned the insert up with a tapered reamer. The sway bar mounts need to be raised. BMB sells a set. Wheel BS needs to be about 4", but I forget the minimum.

Subsequently, my tie rod jam nut began refusing to remain thread-locked, so my next project (after work quiets down) is to install a Currie tie rod.
