Custom Control Arm

The tie rod ended up interfering with my modified steering stabilizer mount and the sway bar mount. Seen here is my solution. At full turn to the right, the head of the tie rod end goes into the hole. Hazel was running the axle as a three-link, so I chopped the end off of a JK upper control arm and welded it to the axle with some bracing I cut from scrap 3/16-inch-thick plate. It might be cobbled-together, but it drives great with no bumpsteer at all.
