I finally installed new links on my honcho. I bought the kit & went with the 4 link option everything looks great but at the same time I bought the high steer knuckles & can't see how they would fit. Steering arm is Too short & up against the diff. Any ideas? I did not get the hands brothers servo relocate yet.

Are they zero ackerman ? Either way, you will most likely need to make a longer link for them as the bend in the arm is a different angle than the stock ones.

When you make the link you will also want to put a bend in it so it clears the pumpkin when turning.

I ussually make a template out of 3mm/4mm all thread(depending on the rod ends you are using),once i have the bends where I need them I make the aluminium link.3mm/4mm all thread is easier to bend than the aluminium tube and no need to tap it and do the extra work to find out you made it a little to short.

When using hi-steer knuckles, I ussually mount the long rod on the bottom of the arm and the drag link on the top of the arm

Ask my dad about the 4mm link material and traxxas revo rod ends. Cheap and super strong way to build your own custom links :thumb:
