    That is virtually the same as the POS ( original Jago set up ) except the box is to the rear of the 4 bar.

    Not wanting to Hijack the thread but are the rubber joints no good then (guess whos using 1)

    That looks so much better and the only issue i can see that MAY cause an issue (not visible by the pics) is if it misses when the suspension is on full drop as the top bar on the 4 bar looks like it may catch (but could just be the pic angle)

    Regarding the rag type joints vince, the one shown in an earlier post didnt appear to have any safty pins incorporated in the design, so if the small bolts snap you got no steering at all, there is a type of rag joint as fitted to nissan patrols for instance that still enables you to steer the vehicle if the bolts shear, to a somewhat limited degree anyhow, personally i like to have something a little more substantial than a glorified exhaust hanger as a means of steering. also the u/j type joint is much better at operating at sharper angles.[should of put this in the pm really]

    I've used a 6mm thick steel disk instead of a rag joint, that won't break I couldn't see how to easily join the steering shaft to the original splined connector (it's split so it can tighten up on the splines) so I used the completed bottom half of the original rag joint without the rubber bit.

    UJ's and new shaft are land rover disco items, 2 UJ's, rag joint (with safety pins) and shaft for just over £30 (new) which seemed cheap to me.

    Clearance on the four bar is fine, it's the angle of the photo that makes it look worse than it is.

    yep i can see what you done there pete looks all good, the flex [if any] will be taken care of by the u/j,s not the disc,
