Why not try changing the PSI range to be more than4000. DriveWorks lets you use rules in the background, so when this project was setup, rules were set up so that Tie Rods are added to the design if the PSI range selected is above 4000.In this example the picture changes to reflect our selections andof course when we are ready to create our actual model that will update too!
