California Residents: Proposition 65 Warning


Rein in your steering with our new CLYDESDALE tie rod and drag link. This system is unlike any you have seen before. First the 1 1/4" thread forged end links are massive, especially when compared to ordinary ends. Because of this, be sure to check your current clearance from the center point of your knuckle where the stud goes into the inside edge of your wheel. You need 1 1/2" of clearance to be safe.

Next we add thread-in, quick-change cartridges to the end links. The cartridge design allows for greatly increased stud swing, more than enough for even the most demanding situations. The cartridge features oversized ends with grease slots below the taper. We have different cartridges with different tapers available for various knuckles and pitman arms. Our tie rod cartridges include the "Rock Lock" urethane disc designed to control rotational movement of the tie rod which is a common problem with stock and other aftermarket tie rods. It also acts as the seal for the cartridge keeping mud and debris on the outside.

You will never need to replace the whole tie rod again. If the cartridge ever wears out, you can swap in a new one without even needing to get an alignment. This is also a great feature if you decide to change to different steering knuckles or go to a tie rod overn knuckle system. All you need to replace is the cartridge to make it compatible with the new knuckles. The same thing applies to the pitman arm cartridge. If there was ever a need to switch pitman arms to a different size taper, again you would only need to change the cartridge.

Finally, the center links are 1 5/8" 4130 DOM stress relieved chromoly. The links have wrench flats machined onto them and use jam nuts for ease of adjustment. Forgings and center links are powder coated black for great looks and corrosion resistance.

NOTE: Most 76-79 F150s use a pitman arm that integrates the upper draglink ball joint into the pitman. You must change your pitman arm if that is the case. We have a limited supply of used stock pitman arms and new drop pitmans that will fix this incompatibility.
