The Rubicon Express Chromoly JK draglink is designed to convert the stock mounting location from underneath the knuckles to on top of the knuckles. This will improve the steering handling and geometry angles on JK vehicles that have used a track bar drop down bracket with their lift. The use of a tapered reamer will be needed.
we installed this under knuckle just like old one instead of over the knuckle because we did not have a reaming tool so far no problems some trouble with bump steer but i am planning on buying a drop pitman arm and just leaving the drag link as it is i am worried that if i do try to ream hole the taper wont be right and the tie rod end will wobble in hole
What size tapered reamer should be used for an over the knuckle installation?
Asked by dokon from on
Dokon, The Rubicon Express Chromoly Draglink requires the largest opening of the hole to be .730". Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

I need to know if this can be installed like the old one under the steering knuckle instead of over since we did not have a reamer to redo the hole from the top down when we put it on.It has been on jeep for over a year now and i have had no problems, some bump steer but over all no trouble.It came with a RE 4.5inch lift kit. I would like to know if i can leave it as is an use a drop pitman arm to eliminate bump steer problem? Or do i need to install over knuckle?

Hello! This drag link shouldn't be causing any trouble when installed upside down. The benefit of installing it over the knuckle is increased ground clearance. I would still very much recommend a drop pitman arm if you have lifted your JK in any way.
