DANGINA -- You've stated "My turning radius from lock to lock is about 1.8 turns"... and that's with the longer Fast Ratio pitman arm (and the longer idler arm, I presume, as well). At about 1.8 turns lock-to-lock, that is very, very fast!!!... something I'd love to have for the quickest pylon manuevering! (With my T/A box and longer idler arm as well, I also run a smaller stering wheel.... 11.5" diameter... helps for quicker steering action!... and, of course, a Saginaw ps pump... never run a Federal ps pump!!!).

Question: At that ratio/setup, are the inside of the front tires hitting the frame rail (typically the rear inside of the tire)?

Are you running a BB or SB? I ask because most long arm setups interfere with tubular BB headers (unless some denting is done for clearance, as required).

T/Anks ahead!!

The fronts don't hit the frame rails as I am running 1" spacers and +15mm enkei rpf1 rims with a 245/45/r18 tire.(I'm also running 2" drop spindles from magnumforce and I have my hotchkis adjustable strut rods maxed out for the most caster, I'm also running hotchkis UCA's, Running a big block setup with hedman 78030 headers - no issues there, but I did have to chop up my headers for the mini starter when I went to the larger flywheel (11" instead of the 10.5") I am running the fast ratio pitman/idler arms.

Thanks for the info. Work pulled me away from the car but now it's back on my radar. There's a lot I need to do with it.

I'm 99% sure I'm going with the Borgeson, new pump, and coupler. I'll probably go back to stock pitman/idler but that will depend on if I go with a new TTI setup.

Anyone got any leads on some good Mopar mechanics in the Los Angeles / SFV area?

Thanks.

Jim

Avoid that U-joint like the plague! Stick with the mod'd pot coupler from Bergman!

My ujoint is working fine too. Been on for 5 years. What is so wrong with it?

Chassis flex can bind it up since the u-joint eliminates the ability to absorb beam bending in the car as a whole. Sub frame connectors go a long way in preventing this.

Ujoints on all my cars. No problems. 30k+ miles and god knows how much track time/autocrosses. But I'm sure with all the un-weather protected brake pistons, heims and u joints, one of them will explode any day now.
