Considering SOA with high steering on my '78.

Have some questions that I have not found answers to....

I like this setup with the connecting rod behind the axle. I believe this is a 4x4 labs system, although I was not able to find it on their website. Does anyone run this or something similar? Any issues with oil pan interference? (I would look on my truck but it is about 40 miles way at this point....)

If you're open to forward facing arms, I know Luke used to offer the arms at custom heights for a forward tie rod as well.

I like the rear arm because it resolves some tie rod clearance issues for various wheel options. It also protects the tie rod well.

Just want to be sure I won't have an issue with clearance to oil pan etc.

Btw @reddingcruiser.....What does Frombe mean?

Ah, trivia. It means 'from behind' . Asked Luke the same question years ago.
