Also got a moog draglink. The $20 one I put in the donor truck to get it home is wasted.

Kind of a joke there aren't more options for an affordable adjustable draglink.

Would you cut the size of the pic's down. I can only see maybe half of a pic at the most. In the second pic all I see is about 2/3's of the front of a a red rusted trailer.

Oh but there is. PO of my 93 put a GM steering box (extremely similar to ours) in the 2wd position along with the matching pitman arm, re-tapered the steering arm on the axle for K30 drag link ends, and the result is now a $40 adjustable draglink that I can replace at any parts store. Id post some pics but photobucket, well, you know...
I could've left it stock...but why?

Screw has been bottomed out.

I had more pedal left :D

TV linkage is limiting the throttle travel.
