Steering and Front End Components
STEERING AND FRONT END COMPONENTS
Worn steering and front end parts can mean that your vehicle will never hold a front-end alignment within specs. Worse, excessive wear can mean play and slop in the steering, resulting in a dangerous handling situation (and a vehicle with horrible road manners).
- Steering Dampers – If you’ve got a truck, Jeep or SUV that sees hard use off-road, you need all the steering stability you can get. Along with a heavy-duty sway bar, dual steering dampers can help soak up the energy of lateral shocks to each wheel, preventing possible damage to other steering and front-end components.
- Steering Arm – Bear in mind that when you lift a vehicle for extra ground clearance, it’s much more than just adding lift blocks between frame and axle, or inserting spacers in the springs. It also entails changing plenty of other suspension, drivetrain and steering components, to help maintain the right steering and driveline geometry. Changing the steering arm and steering block eliminates bump steer and helps improve roadholding on a lifted vehicle.
- Drag Link – Connected to the steering sector shaft by means of the Pitman arm, the drag link is what actually turns the wheels left or right. An adjustable drag link can help make it easier to correct steering wheel center and turning radius on a lifted vehicle, without having to change or adjust the original drag link angle.
- Tie Rod End Adjustment Sleeve – Make tie rod adjustments easy with super-strong tie-rod end sleeves; suitable for use with OEM tie rods.
