Internal steering stops control when the fluid goes into bypass mode at full steering lock. Howe has a box-marking procedure for his customers so that correct internal stops can be built into the box. Howe also has a procedure for determining how much stroke an assisting ram needs. By building a complete, coordinated steering system, Howe Performance makes the steering box, the ram, and the axle stop at the same time. This prevents the hydraulic system from becoming a tubing bender.<br /><strong>STEP 1</strong><br />
Rotate the pitman arm full clockwise until the steering hits the stops. With a straight edge and scribe, accurately mark the pitman arm inline with the command mark as shown.
