If you're gonna replace, might as well upgrade.

Ditch the Y-link crap and go for a 3/4" heim setup like Ballistic or Ruff Stuff have. Damn solid product and about half the price of the "upgrade" kits.

With 32" tires the stock equipment will survive. In my opinion oxle tube flex and steering flex starts at 35" tires. Ron
