nice kit

had to replace all the tie rod ends, so I decided to upgrade. glad I did, this is a great kit. everything is included. install was easy and directions are good. I did have to adjust the steering stops so that the tie rod would not come in contact with the differential and the steering stabilizer. I have not noticed any adverse affect to the turning radius. I have had no problems negotiating the trails I wheel on.

Works great, modification to damper req

This is a great heavy duty replacement for your old YJ or wrangler, however just be aware that you will have to buy a thinner steering damper so that it clears the tubing while steering, mounting brackets for the new location on drag link are included I wheeled them for a year hard on 35" Super Swamper LTBs with only one tie rod weakened at the end of the season I am running a 89 Wrangler 8.5" lifted, shackle reversal, detroit lockers, cammed 4L, many other mods

Do you need a high steer system or will it fit on a stock 1995 YJ?

Asked by Mike from San Diego on

Hi Mike This tie rod system will fit your stock Jeep Wrangler YJ. This is a heavy duty replacement system that is much stronger than the wimpy factory units. Thank You
