Are there not supposed to be two meatal shields in the drag link kit? mine only came with one

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:

Do you have an exploded print out of the steering box? Can you also give me a list of the parts I need to get to do a overhaul on the steering system? Thank you very much,

Willys Tech:
We do have master parts listing and mechanics manuals that will have the exploded views in them. If you need help too call us toll free.

Does this kit come with Instructions Mine is all in pcs not sure how it goes back together

Willys Jeep Parts Tech: See link above on install.

Do you have the tool to take the steering connecting rod apart from the steering gear arm?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
A fat phillips head screw driver will do the trick.

I bought this kit but the springs for my 1955 cj5 are much shorter than the new ones. Is this correct or do I need shorter ones?

Same problem different jeep. I have a 1954 M38A1. The springs in the 923418 kit are too long. I had to use my one good spring and replace my broken spring by cutting the 923418 spring with a Dremel.

I have an early CJ-2A, I bought this drag link repair kit. I can't fit the parts in the link. 1) The springs bottom out before I could put a cutter pin in. 2) On the back side, I put two little plates in the bottom, even with that, the steering arm interferes with the drag link side. It is as if I should put the spring in the bottom but is not what is recommended.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Call me toll free. Ask for Mike M. and I can go thru it with you. Happy to help out.

do the rubber seals and curved clips go on the outside of the drag link?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, that is correct. They are the dust covers.

I need to no the order in which the parts to repair the drag link on a CJ-3A go together on each end

Willys Tech:
The cups go against the ball then the springs and finally the screw on caps.

I purchased the drag link repair kit for my 49 cj3a and installed it. on the end that attaches to steering box when i tighten the screw in order to get it in far enough to insert the cotter pin the knuckle is really tight, is this correct or have I overtighten it?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
The kits come with extra hardware. Make sure each end has at least 1 spring and a cupped surface against ball. Tighten but make sure not grinding.
Willys Tech:
It should be really tight but not enough to grind and cause wear on your ball.
