Currie Currectlync Steering Installed

Installed my Currie Currectlync Steering yesterday. All I can say is WOW, it is REALLY beefy. My truck hasn't moved in about 2 months due to steering problems. I ordered the JCR but when it came to installing, I had no desire to ream the knuckles and pitman. I decided to buy the Currie and sell the JCR. I got it for $390 shipped from redrock4x4.com. The Currie part number is CE-9701. Any site that sells the Currie does not list the ZJ as an application but it works. I also installed my KOR TB Conversion a few weeks ago so that might help with the wandering as well.

Here is a comparison between the Currie and stock V8 steering I found on the net:

My Currie Installed:


Overall I am very happy with the setup and highly recommend it. Before, my ZJ was all over the road. I could not get it aligned and there was so much slop in the steering. The stock setup was only 5 months old (I replaced everything in January). So after all the problems and watching my ZJ sit in the driveway for the past few months I decided to shell out the dough for this.

Rating so far: 10/10

Now that my truck is finally complete I can squeeze in wheeling along with my other hobbies. So for anybody looking for a great steering solution, this is it.

thats good to hear that it is an improvement over stock...

i chose the JCR for a few reasons...

1.) some guy was selling it, so i got a good deal for it.

2.) no more inverted "Y" setup

3.) larger TREs

I'm definitely not knockin the JCR setup. It is an awesome setup. I just got lazy and the day I tried to install it was 100* out. I took the easy way out but love it.

well, IMO... there isnt much you can knock on the JCR about... other than the work it takes to install.

If I lived near JCR or atleast had a reputable shop near me I would of had the JCR installed. Let me know how it works out for you.
