Hydro on rockwells

Been tossing around ideas on my hydro mount on the rockwell. i Need opinions on installing a 1" heim joint through the stock steering arm for the ram end to connect to.would this be too much stress on the heim? Any other suggestions? its a leaf sprung app.

Use what you have there. That pins well work. And learn from my misstacks dont mount the ram angle at the axletub's. Make it strait with the tie rod. It work with the steering not against it. Plus ya'll have alot stronger steering set up.

Sooo, if the rockwell axles have a 10" stroke, would it not be better to go with a 12" ram, so that the ram is not constantly being "bottomed out" or am I overanalyzing this?

If you let the ram bottom out you wont have to rely on the stock steering stops and possibly bust a knuckle.

Ive never seen a rockwell knuckle break. And i would go with a 2.5x10 ram. if your pushing big tires you'll be helper the the added power you get. i have my steering stop bolt turned in some. Just a little trick ive seen. Rockwell dont turn for ****. That way guy run two fronts. I like the challange of running one steering axle.

Those who have Rockwells: What size rams do YOU use? How fast does the 2.5X10" ram move?
