Drill bit
« on: February 24, 2017, 06:41:04 PM »
Does anyone have a 53/64 drill bit? I am about to do a drag link flip and need to drill out the mount.

 Drill press.

First time the shop tried to drill mine,they tried by hand and made hole too big which on drag link, any slop causes tons of free play in steering, i had to order a new knuckle and have it machined before reinstalling.

Yeah I planned on taking it off and doing it with a press.

Synergy sells a 7/8 drill bit to install their kit.  You sure that you need a 53/64?

Also, how much bump stop are you running?  I think you need something like 3" of bump stop to run the flip kit, otherwise things tend to hit at full stuff.

Yeah it was pretty specific in the size. They do require 3" stops which the stops I have from teraflex are for 3-4" lifts so that should be fine.

It's designed to be used like a normal drag link or used as the high steer flip.

Anyone have a 7/8 drill bit? Can you take a set of calipers to it to see what the actual diameter of the cut is going to be? I need to know tonight if possible
