We have taken the basic 1-Ton steering kit to the next level. Instead of doing the same old steel tie rod and drag link that everyone does we've gone with machined 7075 Solid Aluminum. This material has a lot of flexibility so when you run into a rock (and you will) it can flex and spring back to its original shape. Steel just bends and stays bent.
We also believe in only supplying only the highest quality components. The other guys cut corners by supplying the cheapest Tie Rod Ends possible. Notice that nobody ever mentions what brand TREs come in their kits? We supply only the highest quality MOOG TREs with our kits so that you can install it once and forget about it for a long long time. We also include our exclusive Roll Stop tie rod end boots to prevent tie rod roll and keep your steering tight.
Available for use Under the Knuckle (UTK) with stock track bar setups, or Over the Knuckle for those running more lift or who want more ground clearance. Both are the same 1.5" diameter 7075 Aluminum, and include 4 new Tie rod ends. The steering and track bar combo kit also includes frame and axle track bar brackets for the XJ and a 7075 Aluminum track bar with cromoly heim joints.
NOTE: Your Knuckles and Pitman arm will need to be re-tapered to fit the GM style 1-Ton TREs. You can do this with the proper tapered reamer, or by using our machined pitman arm and tapered knuckle inserts.
For OTK installs you will need to move your trackbar up to match the drag link angle or you will get bumpsteer. We recommend using our OTK Track Bar Kit. You will also need to remove or relocate the stock sway bar mounts as well as some other trimming and fitting for clearance.
Some heavy duty diff covers extend forward much farther than others and can cause interference with the tie rod. You may need to adjust your steering stops accordingly, or choose a cover that doesn't protrude as much.
