Hey Mike! I've been silently following your build as always LOL - congrats on the other mod

Yup, AEV High Steer Kit. Includes a trackbar relocation bracket, raises end links for sway bar, relocates SS and flips drag link.

Description:

AEV's High Steer Kit provides significant improvements to steering precision and handling by correcting the roll center height of the front suspension. Bringing the steering geometry back into factory alignment reduces body roll, bump steer, and roll steer, all major contributors to the loose or sloppy steering and driver fatigue commonly associated with many lift kits. the kit includes a flipped draglink to improve ground clearance as well as a heavy duty steering damper.

Man that drives me nuts


So like most other drag link flip kits, it relocates the ss, raises drag link, sway bar end links, etc. they call it "high steer", but leaves the lowest part of the steering, the tie rod, below center line of the axle. I just wish they'd call it what it is lol

The flipped drag link doesn't change ground clearance, it improves steering geometry, getting the drag link as close to parallel with the trackbar as possible

Thanks, by the way! We're more than 1/3 of the way there...there are some awesome things about being pregnant...I now understand the families of 6 children +

I dunno, I needed to try something because I was having some issues and this kit was the most economical thing (parts wise). I don't wheel like you, mainly a beach driver (for now).

It certainly improved things for me, steering is way better.

I'm on the clock for the other mod....girlfriend is a few years older and has been hinting on the shiny mod and the rest that follows. lol

Yes, utilize the stock end on the pitman arm side.

No worries

Oh it's a great kit I'm sure! It helps with road ride certainly! I'm not knocking it, just what they call it

Yeah, the "flipped drag link" is nothing more than a stock drag link from a right hand drive JK, so the stock end works. I ended up buying a moog tie rod end that's meant for a Ram HD, but fits the JK. It's greasable, which is nice. I didn't replace mine till my boot tore on the stock end and I had some Clunk going on. It was only ~$35

LOL!

I like economical, useful parts. I'd prefer to change out the complete draglink at once so both ends have the same mileage. I guess I'll be ordering!

I have those wheels, a 2.5" RE lift and 35" Toyo M/T's and it all looks great together.
