This Heavy duty steering box mount is designed to fit 87-95 Jeep YJ Wrangler. The mount is fabricated from 1/2" steel. This mount moves the steering box 1" forward, and bolts into the factory holes in the frame.
In many high-steer applications with spring over and shackle reversal, there is an interference problem with the pitman arm hitting the tie-rod. Thishappens when the drivers side tire flexes up, and canoccur due to a few different reasons. Many shackle reversal kits move the front axle forward a small amount. Also, some high-steer arms are longer, and require a longer pitman arm to achieve full steering. This causes interference between the two.
If youuse our forged 2" tall high-steer arms, a stock YJ/TJ5.5" long pitman arm, and keep the axle in the factorylocation, you will not need the steering box mount. However, if you areeven thinking about a shacklereversal, andmoving the axle forward an inch or two, the box mount is a great start to your project.
WARNING: If you are running an aftermarket bumper, be sure there is room to move the steering gear 1" forward.
