    I designed an built my first set of uprights.

    I used an online suspension geometry calculator to locate my steering arms on the uprights to minimize bump steer.

    Problem is I now dont have enough steering angle

    Any suggestions??

    Let me know if you need any other info.

    I have everything in SW, I just dont have a picture of the assembly on this computer right now.

    THANKS Guys

    Mitch

    (I hope these pictures show up)

    Right now you have reverse ackerman. Like real bad. You need to move the pivots on the rack out so that you can move the arm pivots out. That and maybe some shorter arm's? they look real long, but with where the rack pivots are currently you probably would have run into clearance issues making them any shorter.

    It's all a game of compromises................

    This would prob work, and changing rack mount so steer shaft don't hit that cross tube of chassis. Angle up a bit to lessen the u-joint angle.
