This detail shot shows the steering bell crank assembly mounted on the front axle housing. The relay rod from the rear steering box enters from the rear and the pivoting crank arm pushes and pulls the draglink shown here behind the tie rod connecting the knuckles. This design keeps the steering action constant on the live front axle as it cycles through large suspension movements. The relay rod from the pitman to the bell crank matches the movements of the links in the suspension.
