Steering angle


Staff member
So a couple weeks back I bent my ram. Once I did some measuring, I found my ram to be too long. Typically a Super Duty axle has an 8” throw. I have a Fusion Super Duty and I found out it measures out to 6.5” throw. Question is, have any of you took a grinder to the steering stops on the knuckles? What is the max throw a standard JK box can handle? I have a WTO plumbed factory steering box. Looking for ways to get the most out of my steering.

According to another manufacture, they say that the steer stops can be ground down to a desired length, but you must grand them down a small bit at a time and not completely off. As for the exact distance of clearance, I've yet to locate this. I would consult the axle manufacture for this information.

I know talking to most guys with the 05+ stuff we are seeing 9-9.75" rams. I know that a few guys are running the weld on steering mounts for the knuckles and that changes angles a lot too. Mine cycles a 9" ram with the Reid SPK.

Is the steering at the knuckle matching the pitman arm travel?
