3/4" Heim Steering Kit
Before you take a look at this kit consider something....
If you are using High Steer Arms you should use the 7/8" kit, it is only $10 more and substantially stronger. This kit should only be used when using the stock knuckle mount and it is too small to safely bore to 3/4". This is my opinion only, but the cost & weight differences are minimal and the strength difference substantial. Enough said....
This is your not so basic steering setup that uses 3/4" heims with easier adjustment & much stronger tubing. The kit can be used with stock steering position on the knuckle or High Steer arms. The arms or knuckles would need a 5/8" bore.
These are stronger than stock because we use 1.5" X .25" Wall DOM tubing and 3/4" Ruffstuff Heat & Cryo Treated Chromoly heim joints.
You will receive:
2 - 54" of 1.5" X .25", 1" ID wall DOM tubing
4 - 3/4" Weld Bungs, 2 LH & 2 RH, 16TPI for Heim Joints
4 - 3/4" Jam Nuts, 2 LH & 2 RH, 16TPI for Heim Joints
2 - 3/4 X 3/4" RS H&C Chromoly Heims, 1 LH & 1 RH
2 - 3/4" X 5/8" RS H&C Chromoly Heims, 1 LH & 1 RH
2 - 3/4" X 5/8" RS Stainless Safety Misalignment
2 - 3/4" X 5/8" RS Stainless High Misalignment
2 - 5/8"" bore Safety Washers
One of the unique things about this setup is the Safety Misalignment. We combine the misalignment you need with the Safety Washer you also need, eliminating a join point which is a potential stress riser and an obvious shear point.
Another thing we do differently from others is use a 3/4" X 5/8" heim with a safety washer in the lower. The 3/4" X 5/8" heim is fractionally stronger and it doesn't need misalignment in a tie rod position.
We do not provide the 5/8" bolts you will need. You must determine the length you need and it will vary with the thickness of your High Steer arm & Pitman Arm.
We supply more DOM than you need because it is way too easy to make a mistake in your calculations and you can always cut tube, growing it back is the hard part! This kit has 54" lengths because we only recommend it for narrow width steering such as stock width Jeeps, Scouts, Early Broncos, & FJ40's with stock axles. If you are running heavier we would recommend the 7/8" kit for the additional strength.
