Comments about Rugged RidgeHeavy-Duty Tie Rod/Drag Link Kit:

So I got this from the 4wheel Parts, partly cause one of the guys there is running it on his XJ. Anyways yes its very beefy indeed. The issue I have with this is is that there is a ton of slop in ther steering and it also rolls or twist when you steer side to side. Also its a month or 2 old and the TIE's are already bad. I wish I would have researched more before hand I would have done over the kn

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "in the manufacturer description on the rugged ridge website, it specifies that this should not be used with a lift larger than 4"". if i were to have approximately 4.25"" on my 2001 jeep Cherokee, would i be able to solve this issue by using a dropped pittman arm? also, it said that this is not recommended for vehicles with less than 2"" of lift, and as far as i can tell the only dropped pittman arms i can find are for a 3.5"" lift or greater. essentially what i am asking is if i purchase this with a 4.25"" lift on my jeep will it work, or will i need to correct things, and if so would a dropped pittman arm work for the correction? thanks"
