    Question Tundra steering?

    Hi guys, just took the tundra out for a test run and found the steering is crap! It wouldn't turn very well, I mean the turning radius was small. Question, could it be the steering links that are on this truck?:noway:
    .
    If this is the case I would be able to convert it to this,
    .
    I will put it on to see what it looks like. Thanks in advance for any advice, Jim.

    Here you can see I have the "on axle" steering in place.
    .
    WRONG, it binds every where?!? See why, 1: I have the link that connects to the servo under the leaf and the link from one side to the other is on top? Redid it and looks better but I will have to move the mounting bolts for the shocks as the knuckle hits it?
    ,
    with the tires on,
    .
    Do you guys think this will work/help with my steering problem? I know this is a lot to ask but maybe someone has tried this set up. Thanks in advance Jim.

    Hey, I run this setup on all my high lift axels and it works great.

    The steering is perfect. Not sure why Tamiya did it the way thay did, maybe cost? Anyhow she did great out on the last run. Thanks Jim.
