Cast steering arms need to be reamed with a GM tapered reamer
Requires use of a high steer design (Currie knuckle or machined stock knuckle)
High steer arm needs to be reamed for JK taper (standard on Currie JK steering arm)
Tie rod has a 1.35" forward offset to add clearance in front of the diff cover (we can make a straight tie rod version, just give us a call)
Uses GM tapered ends, not JK
Cartridge ends are replaceable
Requires a 1.75" steering stabilizer / hydro assist clamp
Includes anti-rotation washers to limit tie rod roll (you will need to ensure you do not over ream the knuckle to prevent these from binding. You also need to check steering after install to confirm there is no binding).
The strongest JK steering available. Period. We use super-sized components to put an end to bent tie rods. Massive 1-1/4" shank dog leg ends are paired with 1.75" diameter solid 7075 T6511 aluminum. 7075 is popular in off-road racing due to its "memory." If you hit the tie rod hard enough to make it flex, the bar will return to straight. The aluminum is machined on a CNC lathe for exacting tolerances, and now includes wrench flats for even easier install and adjustment!
Lifetime warranty against bending. Really!
Optional Next Generation Rear 40 Spline Assembly.18 months of design, engineering and testing, resulted in the industries strongest 40 spline rear assembly. The design completed rigorous FEA testing and analysis. - Forged chromolyspindles, hubs, and axle shafts - Forged spindles have 4x more yield strengththan 35 spline spindles - Hubs with over 80,000 psi yield strength to match the spindles - Tone rings integrated into the hub - Forged 4340 chromoly 40 spline axle shafts that are 55% strongerthan 4340 35 spline axle shafts
