So I put a 4 Degree wedge on the WJ and to tell you the truth i dont see a difference at all. Maybe im missing it completely. If you look at the Diverter arms they look the same.
Here is before.
Here is the after
maybe Im looking at the wrong thing?

i see 4*'s of difference seriously, you'll be able to tell once your on the water, the rooster will definately be higher than before and your bow is gonna feel awful light now
Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.
adding the wedge will not change the distance between the control arms, it will change the over all amount of up travel that you have. 4* is not a drastic change but you should be able to tell some difference. think of a 4 foot ladder it is still the same length after you set it on 2 blocks but it is now higher over all
what is your goal with the wedge? more rooster or more lift and possibly more speed?
Watch that bottom steering pin, mine tried to fall out with only a 2* wedge in there. I couldn't keep a clip on it for anything and the funnel on the end of the bowl was the only thing keeping it from falling out through the inside.

Look at your steering arm in the first pic, then the second. Dont look at the reverse bracket.

You will notice a difference in the rooster tail, with just a 4* wedge. If your going to keep it on, I suggest you get the steering extension tube. You are putting a lot of force on the steering. I didn't have one and lost steering on the river.
Thanks for the Heads up guys.
Now I see it. I was focused on the Bucket. For some reason I though it would be noticeable different. but now that i think about it its only 4*
As far as what I need or wanted it for; Ill come clean I got it for the Roost. My roost looks like Toddnjuzz's roost. but we will see what it does overall.
Ya know as I was hooking the steering up I though to my self this is a lot of tension. I was thinking you really don't see guys using the Steering extension with only a wedge, It usually a droop.
You need this set up Bro , I'll make you a deal you cant refuse !
Btnhtillidie, as for the steering cable tension, just buy a steering cable swivel, you don't have any need for a steering cable extension. Tom at JBP has them for cheap and it's a nice part that's easy to install.
