    Ok so all i need to finish crossover steering is a left hand jam nut. I have been to every parts store in town while i was buying tie rod ends and never could find the left hand threaded tie rod end with a jam nut. where the heck do they come from if you cant get a TRE with a jam nut. isnt that the whole idea? What good is a TRE without a jam nut anyway?

    NAPA. That's where I got mine. Can't believe someone would try to sell you a TRE w/o the jam nut, but then again, it is Texas ;)

    Most TRE's don't come w/ jamb nuts. We have to make ours.

    If you can't find one, pm me. I'll help you out. We keep a few of them in stock at all times. They are elusive little buggers. :p:

    Now another quik question. How much of the treads on your TREs are threaded into your draglink? I only have about 1 inch on either side is this ok?
