Anyone out there running over the knuckle steering IRO or JRC? If so what track bar are you running and lift size? I need to figure out if OTK will work in my situation with 8+ inches of lift much appreciated!



My current stock y setup

I would go with the serious kit with inserts. You will also need a drop pitman arm as well as tracbar with drop bracket to match the drop pitman arm.

With a lift that high and tires that big i would think about a wj knuckle swap,Its not the cheapest but you get cross over steering and bigger brakes but you have to run 16s to clear the front brakes.

Exactly the setup I'm getting ready to put in mine. Have it all, just need the time. That said, I'm also only running 5.5" of lift on the new setup, dropping an inch or so from the old setup, if that says anything...

I run ORO U Turn steering with extreme drop pit man arm. Direct bolt up If interested I have a spare pit man arm never used I could sell ya. Im sitting on 13 inch lift in front an 38s works great. Look us up here....

RE
No bump-steer cuz the angles are perfect.

If the track bar and upper steering link have the same angle like shown will have no bumpsteer to it.Them two being at different angles is what causes bumpsteer a lot of the time.
