Tie rod and draglink pics needed

Hey guys,

I'm in the process of replacing my draglink and possibly my tie rod. I was hoping anyone who has an aftermarket draglink or tierod or both could post up some pics of what you've got.

If you have fabbed it up yourself, that would also be awesome to post up.

Thanks a lot.

So, I have a TeraFlex frame brace & drag link flipped kit, I removed the dropped Pittman arm & replaced it with a a stock arm.

Here is that setup on the driver's side:

You can kind of see the Poly Performance Synergy tie rod too.

I have the currie and would not recommend them at all. Running 4" of lift with flipped drag link. If you can cut and weld ruff stuff has kits you can do your own and save quite a bit.

I'm in the same boat. Kinda considering ried knuckles, since I'd also like better braking power, and they allow larger brakes.

Poly seems to be the best in my research. They have a lot of steering upgrades that are all compatible with each other.

I don't think my Rk 2.5stock mod lift requires a flipped draglink and tierod. Had a couple of episodes of dw so I know several of my components need to be replaced.

It probably doesn't require it, but it sure is nice to have!

You should not be doing a drag link flip until 3.5"+ of lift and only if you are having bump steer, doing a drag link flip will limit your up travel and may require extended bump stops.

PolyPerformance high steer kit along with a PolyPerformance chromoly tie rod will improve steering dramatically with lifts 3" and higher.

Regardless if you have any lift or stock, the PolyPerformance chromoly tie rod is a big improvement over the crappy stock one.

Synergy tie rod, synergy track bar, synergy frame side track bar/sector shaft brace, synergy ball joints, AEV drag link end and axle side track bar bracket.
I think the synergy drag link will be the next part up front if I figure out that it will work with the pintler wheels.
