This board needs "Seriously Awesome" emoticon. Totally incredible!

The steering shaft and the bracket makes an interesting juxtaposition. :P

But srsly, top job! I hope it reassures some AWD to-be -people too

Seeing this gives me inspiration to start overhauling my own 4WS system.. too bad you ran off with all the spare parts, eh? looks good tho, and no doubt the 4ws rear end is alot beefier than the 2ws...

the rear steering rack is alot cleaner in person ....
5x cleaner than my old one, thats for sure

Quote:
BTW, These things are beefy...Trailing arms are a solid peice of steel, control arm is stout....alot more than standard 2ws models, and the bushings seem to be alot stiffer as well....that alone seems to be enough to say the handleing would be better stock-for-stock..
For sure they are more stout. The real lateral links on the 2ws weigh, what? maybe 10lbs with all 4 combined... the 4ws arms are, like, 10pounds APEICE

Continue to take lots of pictures, especially of the pipe install, thats gonna help me lots when I overhaul my 4ws system

Never thought this was gonna work tbh, but knock on wood
