Marlin gave away a couple of "ball gusset" kits. Were they to strengthen steering knuckles?
Yes, you weld them up below the axle, where the axle tube and ball joint meet. I won a set, and one of the Cascade guys showed me how they're mounted on his mini truck, it makes a lot of sense. Only problem is you need to remove the inner axle seal before welding, so it could be a while before I get around to doing this.
Kevin, I'll parrot what Romer said as well, had a great time with you & Shane tell him I said hello next time you see him. You're always welcome in Colorado..
