steering stops

Just installed new cpp big brake kit with drop spindles, issue is the lack of steering stops. I know I need to get some 7/16-14 bolts for the spindles to act as stops but not sure on length? anyone run into similar issue?

Re: steering stops

With your truck at ride height turn the wheel to about where it should stop and measure from the spindle to the stop and add an inch for the thread into the spindle. I ended up having to get several different bolt lengths to dial it in. You will need a bolt, lock washer, and nut for each side. I ruined one tire by having the stop just a little short, the shock bolt chewed right into the sidewall.

Re: steering stops

I used a 2" bolt but calipers were hitting the brake hose so I put a 3" in so not to hit brake hose but now I feel like I've limited my turning radius greatly
