Default Tie rod/drag link swap



hello brothers, currently running an iron rock critical path three link suspension, wondering if I can swap the places of the tie rod and drag link without any consequences. Seems like I should be able to just switch them.

Physically possible, yes. However if you do the drag link and track bar will no longer be parallel. Some get away with it, but you will get some bump steer and if you have any loose joints you risk death wobble.
