Post mounting vega box

Im in the process of setting up the front end on my A,could somebody give me some advise on mounting the vega box mount (ie)when the pitman arm is on, what should the distance be between the drag link and the tie rod bar?should it be the same as the distance where they both mount to the stearing arm or should it be a bit wider?also when its at ride hight should the drag link be slightly above the tie rod where it attaches to the pitman arm or at the same as the tie rod,hope that makes some seance to somebody

Hi I have the same setup,mine at the farthest end tie rod bar I have about 1 1/4 inch gap between,at the pitman arm 1 3/4 inch gap between the draglink and tierod.What's more important is to keep the draglink and tierod the same height or level all the way across.Also if you are using a 4 bar on the front I reccomend a front panard bar as well. Hope this helps
