This is a bolt-on solution for preventing bent tie rods from wheeling with larger tires. The tubes are 1-¼” ID SAE 1018 steel that is cold rolled, pierced, and drawn through dies to produce a wall thickness of ¼”. This is true DOM tubing with no seams or welds to fail. Heavy-duty 7/8” rod ends feature standard tapered ends to fit stock knuckle applications. You get one ton strength without any modifications to your steering knuckles. Complete kits with dust shields, castle nuts, cotter pins, jamb nuts and zerk fittings.
Comments: Bought this item for my 86 CJ7 from Advanced Auto Parts with a coupon code and got a great deal. I bought two part numbers to equal the kit (#18050.53 & #18050.55) and ended up getting $100 off total! Shipped quickly. No instructions were included so I downloaded them from the Rugged Ridge website. Easy to install, came with everything I needed, all new hardware. Seems very heavy duty. Able to drive now with no steering stabilizer, smooth ride, good turning. If you do want to reuse your OE steering stabilizer bracket you will have to get new u-bolts as the old ones wont fit around the larger tube.
