OK, here's how you install and adjust one of our custom drag links. These
links are made by TheDude and/or Chevy-SS. The purpose of the custom drag link is
to move the outer ball ends further away from the diff housing. This allows you to
adjust and mod the steering for MUCH tighter turning.
Let's get started:
This is how your stock setup will look. I know, I have two servos, but the rest
of the stuff is stock. Just forget the extra servo (on the right). Start by
disconnecting the servo linkage and the ball-ends from the knuckles...........
OK, now you can easily move the bellcranks left and right so you can remove the
two screws (one of them circled in red).........
Here's your stock linkage setup................
Use a little blue threadlock on all screws......................
Installation is now reverse of dis-assembly. Start by installing the drag link
onto the bell cranks. Put some blue threadlock on the threads. DON'T overtighten.
OK, here's the link installed and aligned properly. This pic is with the radio
ON, and the steering wheel is in neutral position. It's important to have the
bellcrank screws (circled in red) exposed the same amount on each side of the
skid plate. You can sometimes use servo trim to egt to this point, or you may
need to remove the servo saver and re-position it. Or, you can do as I did,
which is get an adjustable arm from the servo saver to the bellcrank.
Once you have the bellcranks properly positioned, then you adjust each
turnbuckle until the wheel is aligned straight ahead, and that's it.
