This is your not so basic steering setup that uses 7/8" 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 3/4" bore.

The adjustment is easier because we add Hex Head weld bungs so a crescent wrench is your adjustment tool, not a pipe wrench which will scar the tube and if too deep cause a major stress riser. Not to mention what it does to the paint...

These are stronger than stock because we use 1.5" X .25" Wall DOM tubing and 7/8" Ruffstuff Heat & Cryo Treated Chromoly heim joints.

You will receive:

2 - 54" of 1.5" X .25" wall DOM tubing
4 - 7/8" Hex Head Weld Bungs, 2 LH & 2 RH, 14TPI for Heim Joints
4 - 7/8" Jam Nuts, 2 LH & 2 RH, 14TPI for Heim Joints
2 - 7/8" X 7/8" RS H&C Chromoly Heims, 1 LH & 1 RH
2 - 7/8" X 3/4" RS H&C Chromoly Heims, 1 LH & 1 RH
2 - 7/8" X 3/4" RS Stainless Safety Misalignment
2 - 7/8" X 3/4" RS Stainless Misalignment
2 - 3/4" 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 7/8" X 3/4" heim with a safety washer in the lower. The 7/8" X 3/4" heim is fractionally stronger and it dosen't need misalignment in a tie rod position.

We do not provide the 3/4" 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!

ruffstuff nailed it on this kit! i installed this kit on my early bronco D44 front axle. joints are good quality everything fit perfectly! they give you more than enough dom to get the job done. ive priced some other ones that were already made for the front axle and this one was much beefier and CHEAPER!

I was kind of hesitant when I purchased this because I wasnt sure I really needed the 7/8 kit. When I received my order the first think that came to mind was, WOW! There is no way Im ever breaking or bending this steering system. Definitely recommend this to anyone building a rock crawler or running tires bigger than a 37s.
