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. 

Please allow 7-10 business days for processing.

    1 ton aluminum steering

    Posted by Lucas bridges on Jan 15th 2020

    I was leery at first to get aluminum steering but after I watched all the well thought out videos by the stinky fab team my mind was quickly made up. The quality of the product is absolutely incredible, even how it was shipped and packaged was great. I love this steering and will most definitely be buying more of their products! Easy install, looks great, and the performance is even better!

    After dialing in, very pleased

    Posted by Kaleb on Dec 3rd 2019

    My initial impression was that the aluminum pieces were high quality parts that should perform well. It did seem that the threads weren't cut with a plug or bottoming tap, which caused the tie rod end to bind when threading. I probably threaded them in too deeply, because the instructions do not give a rough starting position. I noticed there were a lot of aluminum cuts, chips, and debris in the tapped sections which should have been cleaned out before being packed and shipped (why 4 stars). The combination of the chipped threads on the Moog tie rods and the debris in the tapped ends could be a real nightmare for someone who rushes to install the kit.

    The aluminum links themselves are very high quality and achieved my goals of weight savings, increased strength, and, most importantly, stable steering at highway speed. Lastly, the kit doesn't mention install of the steering damper. The website pictures show it on the tie rod, which caused bonding in my TJ, so I installed it on the drag link, much like the OEM setup, and it works well. Overall, it is a great kit and well worth the trouble to install. BTW, do yourself a favor and buy the 1-ton reamed pitman arm.

    Premium 1-Ton Steering Kit Jeep TJ,

    Posted by Randy Frederick on Sep 15th 2019

    What a Great Product, I can't say enough good things about it. From the packaging to the overall detail of the machine work, everything was expertly done. I followed the instructions for reaming the knuckles out and even purchased a new Milwaukee Fuel cordless drill (2803-20) for doing it, I could operate that as slow as by turning it by hand which worked the best and got everything just right. My wife took the Jeep (TJ) down to the DE shore and said it is really a joy to drive it again. The stock steering just isn't up to it when you add a lift to your Jeep and larger tires/wheels. I had it on a road trip to the PA mountains and was hitting speeds of 75-80 mph (not realizing it) and felt completely comfortable, I can't even remember the last time I was able to do that. Besides the product , customer care is 100% also. I had some questions before ordering and received a reply way faster than I was expecting it. I did my research before purchasing this steering kit and after using it for awhile now I believe it to be the best system out there when comparing it to comparable ones that have the drag link attached to the tie rod. From the holes that were nicely threaded in the bars, the threads were nice and tight and had no play in them when attaching the TRE's to them, to the flex and bounce back aluminum bars to the High Quality Moog 1 ton tie rod ends this kit has it all, complete. I am 100% satisfied and can highly recommend this kit to anyone looking to upgrade their current steering setup.

    Steering tie-rod and drag link

    Posted by Kris Winchak on Jul 17th 2019

    Quality product and meets my expections only problem is the tie-rod hits and drags across my terraflex differential cover probable would not be a problem with the original OEM cover. Maybe there could be a fix for the problem I am having.

    Strongest steering on the market

    Posted by Tristin Dodd on May 27th 2019

    I installed this on my TJ and absolutely love it. After about 6 months of some good wheeling on it, it still has the same rigidity as day 1. This cured my shimmy and play it had on the road and it feels like a new vehicle. Love your products!

    Good Stuff

    Posted by Chris A. on Aug 29th 2018

    I was searching for upgrades for my XJ’s worn steering components and ended up chosing this kit. It’s beefy!! Draw backs, really tight clearance around the stock track mount/bolt on the axle, and the tie rod ends are SUPER TIGHT!! I had to put pipe wrenches on them to get them to thread in and still couldn’t get them all the way in! And no they weren’t cross threaded, I had them threaded in about 1.5” before they were impossible to turn. Other than that I’m pleased with this kit and if you don’t mind teaming you knuckles you’ll enjoy this kit.

    XJ 1 ton UTK KIT

    Posted by Keith hendricks on May 30th 2018

    Product arrived a day early. This steering dwarfs the stock setup and was packed exceptionally well. Tie rod and drag link was stretch wrapped the entire length which I left wrapped till install was finished so there were no marks on the aluminum. The finish on the aluminum is great the pictures don’t do it justice. Steering feels much better Instructions were complete and great. Install was easy and I bought the reamer and reamed my knuckles. Complete install was done in my driveway. Excellent product and would definitely recommend the Stinkyfab kit. My brother now wants one for his Jeep.
