Putting the 5.0 steering rack on your 22T 4.0

This week's TLR's blog post about putting the 5.0 steering rack on your 22T 4.0 comes from TLR driver Ean Reilley

It’s a very simple modification of the bulkhead as shown in the pictures, which can be easily done with a dremel.  Make sure to keep checking the clearance so you don’t remove too much material, which would make the bulkhead weak. Also, when doing this you need to make sure to use the 5.0 Ackerman Plates along with changing out your tunbuckles to 55mm length; same length as the 5.0 rear turnbuckles. The benefit of this modification is how smooth the steering is all the way throughout the corner and the ability to get a little more steering.

Parts needed
TLR331032 (23t)

I would like to thank Ean for the post and good luck in your racing!
