Dana 44 High Steer Conversion on Early Bronco Axles

It’€™s been almost three years since the Early Bronco axles went under the Jeep’€™s springs. It only took a few days to get used to the way my YJ behaved with the spring over and everything else that had changed during that project, but one thing that always bothered me was the bump steer. That much lift had put such an angle on the drag link that I felt every pothole and speed bump as a tug on the steering wheel, and even accelerating and braking made the Jeep pull to one side or the other as the front springs compressed and extended. I got used to all this just fine, but obviously something needed to be done sooner or later. The other downside to the D44 upgrade was the loss of turning radius ‘€“ the combination of a dropped YJ pitman arm and the factory EB knuckles left me with fond memories of the (relatively) small stock YJ turning circle.
