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 now offer our 1-Ton Kits in 2 versions, PREMIUM and BUDGET
PREMIUM 1-TON KITS
We believe in only supplying only the highest quality components. The other guys cut corners by supplying the cheapest Tie Rod Ends possible. We supply only the highest quality TREs with our premium kits so that you can install it once and forget about it for a long long time. These kits come with a full lifetime warranty on both the aluminum links AND the tie rod ends.* We also include our exclusive Roll Stop tie rod end boots to prevent tie rod roll and keep your steering tight.
These kits are available as Under the Knuckle (UTK) with stock track bar setups, or Over the Knuckle (OTK) for those running more than 6" of lift or who want more ground clearance. All use the same 1.5" diameter 7075 Aluminum linkage, and include 4 new Tie rod ends.
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 as well as adjustment of steering stops. 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.
