Bent drag link

I was trying to figuer out the steering on my soa when i noticed the drag link would hit the leaf pack, so i put the drag link in a vise and i bent it up about 2 degrees now i can turn my tires fine but does anybody think this might effect something by doing this?

it is a bandaid, i did it on my first soa temporarily. i eventually pretzeled the drag link on the trail, and obviously rendered it undriveable.

aside from buying over knuckle steering kits you can make your own drag link. i made one out of dom tubing, bent it the way i needed it, and welded gussets on both sides of the bends. indestructable. obviously the dom tubing is probably strong enough, then welding gussets on the bends it was never gonna budge.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
