anyone have any insight on relocating front track bar after installing high steer? Should I try to keep the track bar the same length and angle of the drag link.?

Same length and angle would be ideal. But they wont be the same length so you can optimize the lateral misalignment of the track bar relative to the drag link by running it at a slightly different angle. It depends, basically.

If you give me these 5 measurements I can tell you the proper height from the ground:

1) ground to ball center of drag link end on knuckle

2) ground to ball center of drag link end on pitman arm

3) ground to center of frame bolt on track bar

4) length of track bar from bolt to bolt

5) length of drag link from ball center to ball center

It seems to be performing well. I was even able to eliminate the steering dampener.

Maybe if you guys don't have anything constructive to say about the vibration or a words of advice for building track bar brackets you could go jerk each other off on your own private page perhaps.?

Because he just swapped the knuckles and changed the steering. Maybe he did something wrong during the install of knuckles.

Here’s something constructive, you wasted your money on that steering setup and gained nothing you asshat.

I was gonna compute the ideal track bar location based on polar geometry etc - wtf bro chill out. I dont think the vibration was related which is why i asked homie 'why'

Chill out

When you spend $900 on drive shafts only to find out thats not the issue and ask for help from other people who have the same hobby only to get heckled about your welding it is frustrating.

When I lifted it I had a crazy bump steer issue. I though the high steer would put everything back up inline to stop it; well it didn't. After some research I found out it was the rear panhard bar angle that was causing the bump steer. I bought a Delta panhard riser for the rear and that stopped the bump steer.
