Anyone used this product to do a tierod over using this product?

TIE ROD OVER" BUSHINGS


B.C. Broncos tie rod and drag link bushings, from left to right: TRA-1, TRO-1, and TRO-2.
A popular modification to Early Broncos is the "tie rod over" conversion. This modification flips the tie rod over, and locates it ON TOP of the steering knuckles, rather than under them, the way the Bronco came from the factory. This modification lifts the tie rod about three inches higher than stock, where it is much less likely to clash with rocks and other trail obstacles. This conversion also helps reduce drag link angle, thereby reducing bump-steer. This results in fewer hangups and bent tie rods off-road, and a more stable ride on-road. The picture at left shows the Tie Rod Over Bushings being used to put the tie rod on top of the knuckles. The application in the picture is with F-150 tie rod and drag link (available below), as well as the F-150 power steering box, knuckle and disk brakes mounted on the Bronco Dana 44 front end. Notice the tie rod is about 3" higher than stock and the drag link has less angle. The lesser angle decreases bump steer.

If You Want...

F-150 knuckles & stock Bronco tie rod (stock tie-rod position)
You need two TRA-1 Tie Rod Adapter bushings.

Tie rod over conversion with F-150 tie rod & drag link
You need two TRO-1 Tie Rod Over bushings and one TRO-2 Drag Link bushing. This will also require reaming your knuckles and drag link, and the F-150 tie rod and drag link will need shortening. This conversion works with either the stock Bronco or the F-150 steering knuckles.

Tie rod over conversion with stock Bronco tie rod & drag link
You need two TRO-1 Tie Rod Over bushings and two TRA-1 Tie Rod Adapter bushings and one TRO-2 Drag Link bushing. This will also require reaming your knuckles and drag link. This conversion works with either the stock Bronco or the F-150 steering knuckles.

PRICING

Thanks

Actually I have a new set from BC Broncos which if I remember correctly is for the F150 tie rod over conversion, it comes with the reamer too.

It is for sale if anyone is interested.

It may not be what you want to hear but the stock Ford stuff sucks the ends are not replacable and they are weak I would go with the DOM setup that we talked abuuut (< HAHA) before I believe you will be much happier in the long run it is quality stuff as soon as I get my 60 done ( it should be this weekend ) it is the next project on my list because I bend mine every time I go out and I am sick of it. This is just my $.02 Dale take it how you want and I hope to get you and Paul back down here to wheel just leave early I hear the border is a mess now. I do hear good things about bcbroncos but I have not ever got anything from them personaly
