Factory tie rod assemblies bend and break. They are simply too small and weak to get the job done, especially in high-stress situations. While they are generally strong enough for stock performance, street driven pick-ups, with the added stress that come from larger tires, racing, and off-road use, won’t hold up for long.
The fix for these weak tie rod assemblies comes in three stages. All three are bolt-on parts and require no extra modifications to factory components. A two or four wheel alignment is recommended post install.
The best we’ve got; these tie rods are overkill for most, for sure, but when it comes to steering components, failure is not something that can be stood for.
Featuring 1.5 inch wide forged tie rod, massive 2 1/3 inch ball joints and a much larger and stronger inner ball joint these tie rod assemblies are the best of the best.
When compared to factory components:
- 30% larger toe adjusting shaft
- 53% larger tie rod body
- 35% larger outer ball joint
- 28% larger inner ball joint
