Man w/the plan..

Loosen the three adjuster sleeves, grab the centerlink and rotate it "up" so that the Zerk fitting on the lower draglink end points up at a 60 degree angle (roughly up at the bottom of the radiator if it's still stock) and much of your other issue will disappear.

Thanks everyone, hey Paul yes I noticed the zerk facing forward after I posted that pic, as I had read your post in a similar thread in Tech the day before. I'll get on that for sure, and order some of those sleeves. Do you still want to see the part numbers and calipers or are you & Jim pretty confident they're FSB/F150 spindles?

thanks again -Jeff

I'd still like to see pics. I haven't seen anything regarding the brake calipers themselves, and that would confirm things a bit more. The numbers would cement it.
So when you get a chance. No emergency, as you know you need the sleeves no matter what. So just for the FYI department.

Yes Sir, oh and by the way I KNOW for a fact I oriented the zerk when I installed the 3-way kit, my guess is the alignment shop did it but like you said even the pros arent always aware of how it should be.

Thanks. What do those numbers read out as? I'll check them against my known '76 F150 arms and we'll know.
They're for sure Ford brakes, but you probably knew that already.

Thanks

620170, I looked on eBay and that is the number for the L spindle and 620169 is the R spindle for 78-79 Bronco/F150

Cool, so not a "custom" tapered hole you're dealing with. Just larger than a stock EB so the sleeves should be just the ticket.

you're always welcome my friend, I'm at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in Mockingbird Heights

...decided to wait for the sleeves and boots before trying to rotate the zerk, especially since the tie rod (at least the left one) is flat against the steering arm, so wouldn't be able to get the tie-rod roll Paul was referring to
