not safe

Tierod failed at connection to ball joint. Luckily I was in a parking lot and only manuvering to park. I also agree with the other reviewer in there is a lot of slop and the rolling "that is considered normal" is disturbing I am no engineer but I think the slop and rolling contributed to the failure. Mostly used on paved and mild forest roads. A few trips on the beach, never any extream wheeling.

not what I expected

This was an o.k set up for 31s but 33s bend and twist it hard. 35s break the TRE on the road, for the same money you can get an over the knuckle 1 ton joint set up. Live and learn

Think Twice Before You Buy IT

So I got this from the 4wheel Parts, partly cause one of the guys there is running it on his XJ. Anyways yes its very beefy indeed. The issue I have with this is is that there is a ton of slop in ther steering and it also rolls or twist when you steer side to side. Also its a month or 2 old and the TIE's are already bad. I wish I would have researched more before hand I would have done over the knuckle. Live and learn

Answered by mikey from ALA. on

I have an 05 Jeep Wrangler X I put a 4.5 lift Rubicon Express long arm wit a tri-link in the rear. Will the tie rod fit my jeep? Also I'm getting a dual steering stabilizer from skyjacker will it all fit together?

Asked by soto from Yuma Arizona on

Hi Soto The Rugged Ridge heavy duty tie rod kit will come with a bracket to fit a factory replacement steering stabilizer. if you are definitely go with the dual steering stabilizer you will need to make sure that the stabilizer klit comes with u bolts that will fit a 1 1/2 bar. The SKY9240 http://jo.my/yfpxma will come with the correct u bolts.Thank You

Answered by Stevie from Yuma Arizona on

in the manufacturer description on the rugged ridge website, it specifies that this should not be used with a lift larger than 4". if i were to have approximately 4.25" on my 2001 jeep Cherokee, would i be able to solve this issue by using a dropped pittman arm? also, it said that this is not recommended for vehicles with less than 2" of lift, and as far as i can tell the only dropped pittman arms i can find are for a 3.5" lift or greater. essentially what i am asking is if i purchase this with a 4.25" lift on my jeep will it work, or will i need to correct things, and if so would a dropped pittman arm work for the correction? thanks

Asked by wes from on

Hi Wes The 1/4" of additional lift is not a concern its the 5-6" lifts were you run into problems with drag link to track bar angle issues and over all length of drag link bar problems. basically you start to run out of adjustment or un safe thread engagement. Thank ou.
