This one is a good option

This one is nice because it has the swivel mount ends but it has a larger 1in shaft which will give your left vs right steering a different feel and speed.

For full hydro this one would be a good pick.

I run the second ram that Ashman posted, it works fine but I need bigger lines because it is a little slow.

Hey ashman, posj,

Is there a "better" way to measure how much ram stroke I need? Going to do this soon and I am working on the steering tomorrow so I might as well be measuring.

Thanks.

Put the axle on jack stands. turn all the way one way. put a mark on the tierod. Use a third jack stand, add a mark on the jack stand that lines up with the mark on the tierod. Then turn the other direction. measure from the mark on the tierod to the mark on to the jack stand.

I would also had steering stops to the back of the knuckle. All crawlers should have front and rear stops.
