As you can see from the bottom photo the inner and outer tie rod piviot points fall on a line between the upper and lower A arm piviot points. You can achieve this on the outer point with the stock drag link but not with the inners.

Tim, to begin with I replaced the drag link with a adjustable link with heim ends. That enabled me to change the inner tie rod pivot point position. Ended up with drag link on bottom and tie rod on top of stock arms with spacers under heim ends to eliminate bump steer. Not liking the stress of the drag link and tie rod on the same bolt I fabricated the arms in the photos. Thinking this over now it would probably be possible to fabricate the arms to use stock tie rod ends for a more stock appearance. It is what it is for now.
