Serious question: What is the benefit of DS over not? Just that it won't bind up (and twist because of the bind)?

Clayton has an even better price too, hmmm. Good call.

Thing is, tie rod from a JY has a high possibility of being bent out of whack before I even buy it.

I like IRO but their track bar is basically the same as the RC one. I'd rather spend the 250 and get a huge JKS one.

And my budget is only like 400 at most for all of this ****. Ugh.
No it's by even close
The Iro bar is solid the rc is tube

I ordered Clayton's double sheer just now.

Best price and best BEEF.

Now onto other steering components.

V8ZJ tie rod or IRO tie rod?

The bar is getting replaced either way.

The question is v8 tie rod or IRO tie rod

really depends on the $ difference between the two.

I vote IRO tie rod. Just over 60 bucks is hard to beat. Plus I dont car for the ZJ bend or adjuster sleeve. The bigger TRE's are nice tho. IRO should adapt their HD rod to accept V8 ZJ TRE's

True. I bought my TRE's at local parts store to have a warranty with them.

Good choice with the Clayton bar.

I can get the zj stuff at advance for cost. So it may be worth sticking with that.
