Jeep 1 Ton Steering Upgrade, over the knuckle (fabrication required.)
Available for all makes and models of Jeeps.

So you want it all? You want to bash the rocks all weekend, then drive it to work on Monday. You want to hold the wheel and a carmel macchiato in one hand, and talk on your cell in another? Well you're going to work for it... but it will be worth it in the end, We promise.

Just like our under the knuckle setup; the rods are a beefy 1.25" diameter DOM, with an almost .25" wall; threads are direct tapped into the tube. This means (unlike a threaded insert) the TRE has full thread engagement into the tube for the length of its threads. On this system the passenger side TRE dust boot is replaced with a polyurethane spacer, which pulls the body of the TRE against this knuckle. This eliminates the tie rod roll that an inverted T setup sometimes has.

We recommend having this kit installed by a professional 4x4 shop in your area as cutting, drilling, reaming, and some fabrication needs to be done Installation should take about 4-5 hours.

In order to install this kit OTK on coil sprung front Jeeps you MUST:

  • Remove sway bar end link mounts (axle side.)
  • Cut/Remove Factory Steering Stabilizer mount.
  • Trim the front of the Coil Buckets.
  • Drill and Ream the Knuckles from the top.
  • Adjust the steering stops.

We also RECOMMEND:

  • That you replace/relocate your sway bar endlinks mounts (axle side.)
  • That you brace the inside front of your coil buckets.
  • Depending on what frameside trackbar bracket your running, you may want to relocate the axle side trackbar bracket above the axle. It's just a matter of matching the angle of the trackbar and draglink.

 

Please read the installation instrucions below BEFORE BUYING THIS PRODUCT. This will ensure that you realize what is involved with this install, and the limitations of this setup.
