    i need pics of bent or modified drag links.not sure on where to bend. just flipped my front axle on my 60 ford. dont really want to raise my steering box unless i have to. ive also added a steering stabilizier to help with the bumpsteer to. Ive also heard of shortening the pitman arm too(anybody done this)thanks matt

    hey, don't have any info on the drag link but i have a '65 f100 bagged and having bumpsteer and need to get rid of it and was thinking to raise the steeringbox. do i just put a block of metal between the chassis and the box or are there other rules to follow? there are homemade tierod relocators on it and that does not seem to work..

    see ya

    Bending the steering link is unlikely to change your bumpsteer, which is generated by the angles and dissimilar arcs of movement of the ends of the steering linkage.

    Cross steering might work, but it would probably generate as much aggravation and fabrication as raising the steering box.
