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

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.

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.
