Ruff stuff “the cure”

Anyone use or try this? It’s called the cure from Ruff Stuff. It’s suppose to take out that little bit of slop that comes with 1 ton steering

Garage
whittled it down and put it on my rebuilt front end, haven't had the chance to drive it yet, but just turning the steering in the garage, you can tell it helps. The tie rod moves nice and even, not a bunch of movement like before. Can't wait to get it on the road

A friend of mine did this on his XJ and said it worked great.

I just redid my steering with all MOOG joints. Its tight with no slop. I think people think this works because they put it on with new joints. Its going to wear just the same and in my opinion is a band aid to cover up sloppy rod ends kinda like a steering stabilizer covers up death wobble. But when it comes back it does so with a vengance.
Boojo35 and Awesome like this.

1995 YJ. 2 inch BDS Spring lift. 1 inch shackle lift. 1.25 inch JKS Body Lift 33x12.5x15's. Engo 10,000 pound winch.

It just shims the dead spot you get from tie rod roll. I bought it and it's literally a polyurethane spring bushing that they cut in half with a saw and it's not even a square cut. My advice, find someone with an extra bushing and cut your own.

1-ton steering isn't a y-link and the 'cure' is useless on crossover steering.

No slop at all when I went to crossover steering.

"1 ton" is the strength rating of the parts, not a design of the steering system. Here is a "1 ton" Y-link setup for a Dana 60 https://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/R2208.html

That makes no sense. It's inherently weaker. I didn't know 1-ton trucks came with y-link steering anymore.

Not many vehicles come with "crossover" steering from the factory, that I can think of. WJs and JKs...

Most any solid axle vehicle uses inverted Y or T.

Interesting. Ford uses crossover, Chevy doesn't, and Dodge uses both crossover and a hydraulic assist-type steering setup with no drag link.

This is the Ford setup:


I'm not arguing with you, I just think this is interesting.

What year is that SD60? A quick google for Ford and Dodge steering pulls up inverted Y and T.

This first pic would be 99-04 Superduty and the 2nd is for Dodge.

Call it what you want. I don’t really care. My steering is a Y set up with some beef to it. The circles fitting rolls a bit when I turn the wheel. It’s always done this. Doesn’t look to be wear.
