Default Re: ackerman steering help

if you want true Ackerman steering on the clod, you need to run a BTA steering rod. this (usually) requires the steering knuckles to be flipped or swapped.
for proper ackerman geometry draw an imaginary line through the knuckle pivot and the tie rod joint center's. proper ackerman would have the imaginary lines from each side meeting at the rear axle. if they meet in front of the front axle, you have an issue ;)
if this is off base, i apologize, i'm at the hospital and its been a long day ;)
