Dayum Take the shafts with it?
Not really any worse than before. The shafts have been questionable from use, I have to replace them anyway.
OUCH! Man I hope I never have to see that here. Just out of curiosity, I see you have the D44 style calipers. Looks as if you modified the factory 60 brake bracket? Got any other pics of that setup. I would like to see how you did it.
Why do you have two tierods?
I didn't do the mod, It was done by the PO way back in '00. I have some pics, PM me your e-maill addy Clay, I'll send em to you.
I thought someone would notice that
That lower tie rod got me off the rocks and onto the trailer. I had to swipe the rod from my K30 dually, since someone named el primero has my spare
this a mod for 15" wheels? I'll pm ya my addy as well
alright!!! just under what circumstances did you break that knuckle?
Yeah Fred what the hell were you doing?
www.cranecommerce.com makes some nice ones too!
i know the feeling
i went with dedenbears after this, i'm very pleased with them so far and good price
Whats the cause of both of your failures?
mine was just fatigue. when it broke i really wasn't doing anything, just came up to the rock in the pic. and the thing broke. i've been running 42's with high steer and hydro assist for quite a while on an old housing. all are contributers to the problem. high steer and hydro especially, the stock knuckle wasn't designed for all that load in that area. after market knuckles are beefed up in that area.
what, no love for Welderboy's knuckles? lol!
Agreed. Exact same thing happened to me.
I bet it was a PITA getting that off the trail........that sucks man!
for steering stops just use grade 8 bolts with a jam nut
