Next came the custom tie rod and drag link. The ends were installed and measured from bung to bung. A to Z recommended to leave approximately 1-1½ inches inside the bung for extra strength. I cut the tubing, welded it up, put it all together, and it was a perfect fit.    To finish the project we welded on the shock and sway bar mounts, hooked everything up, and did a tape measure and “eye ball” alignment.

It was now time to hit the road, get the alignment checked by a professional, and then off to the RTI ramp. The end result, which you can see for yourself, is perfect! It drives and handles great, it looks good, and it was a much less expensive build by using pre-owned parts and working with the right folks to make it all work.
