Finishing up the solid axle in the 91, its a narrowed HP 44 with early bronco shafts. i have a stock 79 F150 trackbar i was going to cut down and sleeve it with leftover DOM from my steering kit, but it would be nice to make it adjustable.
I saw where a guy had cut out a section on his track bar and faced, drilled and tapped the two pieces in a lathe and made it adjustable. I have access to lathes and bridgeports at work, what do you guys think of this? I know I shouldn't be trying to cheap out at this point but I just want to get the damn thing done.

It would be cheaper/time efficient if you just bought the DOM and inserts and did it right the FIRST time.

get a weld in bung and a rod end for the DOM that you sleeve the TB with and it'll be adjustable
