i have one idea but i would like some input plz, my idea is that i could run a rod throuth the steertube and the stem. then bolt it on each side so it would not come off what do you think i should do?

For a few dollars you can order a new steerer from your LBS or just from Rockshox

Don't even think of trying to jimmy a setup. If its too short for a thin stem, you are screwed, and any attempt to fix it has a good chance of messing you up bigtime. Sell it and buy another one.

just get a for extender hammer it in and get this thing, its basicly a realy long bolt that screws into a thing that you put on the bottom of your forks , that holds everything realy tight, i think they sell them on CRC

You can't just "get a new steerer" as the steerer tube is a cryofit system that must be pressed into the crown. You would need a new steerer/crown/stanchion assembly.

Please don't ghetto-rig a steerer though, you will probably not have good luck with it and failure could be catostrophic...this is why you measure what steerer length is needed BEFORE buying a fork. Could you get a shorter stack height stem to compensate?

This happened to me, lucky in Australia we have a guy called jon who owns grip sport and does steerer tube extensions for heaps cheap. http://www.gripsport.com.au/
There is his website if you shoot him a email he will probably do it for you.
