D44 SOA steering question

So I am getting ready to SOA my YJ with scout Dana 44s. I am not sure what size springs or shackles I will run yet. My question is what are the steering options?? I can't make sense of my google searches... Tjanks!

If like to know this also... Be sure to post pics in the build section as you do the swap. I look forward to seeing the transformation.

The best thing to do is OTT (over the top) steering set up. But, it has its draw backs. If not done precisely it will initiate death wobble in a heart beat.

The other option is to get a custom drag link that has the "S" bend in it to clear the springs. Either way, its going to cost.

Check out this link...YJ SOA: Spring Over Axle for Jeep YJ, SOA. Google it. They have all the info and the parts that you need to take a YJ SOA.

I think I am going to get a custom drag link and a different pitman arm for now and call that my steering. then I will start collectiong the parts for the ott steering

im looking into the OTT kit myself, my SOA jeep is horrible to drive on the road because of the great angle from pitman arm to link... OTT LOOKs like the best kit, kit those tie-rods up out of the way, and change angle drastically. just my thought
