    Customer got a craptech lift put on by the local dough-head ripoff shop. Now the tie rod from the rack and pinion to the lift spindles are at too much angle and too short, don't engage enough threads, tore the boots, etc. Anyone know of a good solution? Lower the rack and pinion box? Retaper the spindles and put the balljoints on top? Sorry I forgot to grab a pic. It's pretty much standard 2wd A-arm torsion bar susp. Thanks - David

    I was going to be all smarty pants and show you some scary steering of taco's page but the link I found was DOA. :mad:

    I would tell the lift company they suck and fix it now.

    I've had customers come in with similar problems from this company before. They just tell 'em to get lost. Someone needs to take them to court. Prolly when after someone gets hurt/killed.
