Should i move the drag link "shock"?
 
I put "shock" in quotes as I'm not sure what its called.

Anyway, mine is mounted so that it sits behind the drag link. I've seen people damage theirs when a rock on the trail hits it.

I've noticed in some pics that people's are rotated so that the shock sits above the drag link rather than behind it. Is this something I should do? Or should I stay away from this?

Thanks

I figured that was the case but wanted to verify. :)

So I should be able to just loosen the drag link attachment, rotate forward 90 degrees and tighten it back down?

You are kidding right , you got over 2k post and you don't know what the drag link is and the difference between tie rod

I say go for it move the shock on the drag link to where ever you like

You will need a relocation bracket for the axle end. Then you can rotate the tie rod end.

I know you're just poking fun at me so ill refrain from punching you the throat. LOL

yes yes, tie rod.

I had just finished researching a drag link issue so I had drag link on the brain.

Gimme a break, I'm on my first cup of coffee.

Bet I can talk KJ into updating my thread title. :hide:

the "shock" is the steering stabilizer and relocating it is well worth it. One damaged steering stabilizer is worth it right there.
