Questions and Answers
Richard T. on -- Asked:
Will the Cure work on my 1997 Ford F-350 with a Dana 60 front axle? I have tie rod roll from my pitman arm down to the drag link.
We currently do not have a cure for the Ford
Jason on -- Asked:
Will the cure work with my stock 2014 Jeep Rubicon JKU?
No the JK has cross over steering so the cure would not be beneficial
Bill on -- Asked:
How do I order the R2008 for my 2014 Jeep Rubicon ?
The cure is not made for the crossover steering that the JK has, you likely have another issue causing your play. Cure is only for Y link style steering on the older jeeps
Todd M. on -- Asked:
Can you put the cure on each end of drag link and do you recommend doing the tie rod end only?
The Cure is only designed to be mounted on the tie rod end where the tie rod and drag link intersect on Y-link and T-link style steering systems. It is a rigid material that will crack if mounted at the knuckle or pitman arm due to changing angles.
Nelson on -- Asked:
I have stock-style steering with stock TREs on my YJ (inverted T). Should I order one CURE to go between the drag link/tie rod or two CURES? The other to go on the steering knuckle on the tie rod?
You will want this cure for stock YJ steering https://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/R2008.html
Only one cure, they will crack when installed at the knuckle
PJ on -- Asked:
84 cj7 with a stock steering, will the cure help with this application
I'm not sure on the particular CJ models, but many of them came with cross-over steering from the factory(two separate mounting points on the passenger knuckle: one for drag link, one for tie rod).
The Cure is designed for Y-link/T-link style steering, where the tie rod and drag link intersect with each other. You would mount it at this intersection, if you have that style steering on your particular CJ. This Cure is for the GM 1 ton ends, so if you have factory CJ y-link steering on your rig, you would run the black Jeep Cure.
Felix P. on -- Asked:
Hola , will it work for a 1969 Z/28 ?
I do not know. The 'cup' of the cure measures 1 3/4". If your tie rod end housing is less than 1 5/8" in diameter with the boot off, it would more than likely be to loose of a fit to be effective.
Adam on -- Asked:
will this work with a Y link OTK for a xj
Yes as long as you are using the GM 1 ton rod ends at the Y
Scott on -- Asked:
Will this work with the Currie steering kit for Jeep TJ?
You will have to keep the grease boot installed on the TRE and hold it centered while tightening the castle nut down (some shaving of cure may be necessary so its not too tight). I have a few customers using it on that steering kit
darren L. on -- Asked:
hi will these suit a 1985 cj7
If you've got the Y link or T style steering you will want this cure for CJ TRE https://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/R2008.html
If its the crossover steering the cure will not work or be beneficial
Garth on -- Asked:
Do you have The Cure available for a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7l?
We do not, the WJ used a crossover style steering and the cure is designed to sit at the "y" in a y link style system.
Using one of these on a WJ would cause binding and ultimately wear out the tre's faster if not break the cure.
Jeremy F. on -- Asked:
Can I use this for my 98 dodge ram 1500 4x4? If so which one is for dodge ram?
Unfortunately we currently do not have a cure designed for the dodge tie rod end. The tapered pin dimensions that I have found online put it in between the two size options we carry
byron on -- Asked:
will it help a 2001 tj with 33in. & a 3 or 4 in. lift?
Yes it will stop drag link roll taking up much of the play in the steering wheel. Depending on the brand steering linkage you are using will determine if you need the standard Jeep Cure, or the larger White GM cure.
Amanda on -- Asked:
What can be modified or is there a solution to use this on a 97 f350 Dana60?
We've seen on many of the Ford tie rod ends the stud is too long for the cure. We've had a customer use it on his 97, but he stacked washers and I would not recommend that.
You may have a shorter stud on yours depending on the manufacture.
Bryan W. on -- Asked:
Will this work on the steering for a 96 5.2 zj. The rs2008 says it's not for v8 zj.
Depends on the manufacturer of the linkage. On my 98 5.2 ZJ, I was able to use the R2008 as it still has the factory linkage on it. Aftermarket replacement linkage such as Moog, the housing is larger and requires the white cure, usually fitted over the grease boot instead of removing the boot like on the stock linkage.
R2008 fits up to a 1 3/8" diameter tie rod end housing and the R1768 will fit up to a 1 3/4" diameter housing.
Chad M. on -- Asked:
Do you offer these for the 99 Dodge Ram 2500 steering? I am having same issue. The steering is same as a jeep only bigger 3/4-1 ton components
Not specifically for the Dodge. The white cure measures 1 13/16" inside the "cup". You can check your tie rod end housing diameter that joins the drag link and tie rod to see how close the fitment is. If your end is a bit smaller, you may have to install it over your grease boot for the best fitment, whereas on the GM 1 ton ends the Cure would replace your grease boot.
Mark on -- Asked:
I have a 96 Ford F-350 dana60 wondering if the cure bushing can be modified to work on my steering ?
We have found many of the tie rod ends for the Ford applications(particularly 1990's models), the tapered stud is to long for the Cure to be effective. The Cure is about 1/4" thick and needs to fit snug. You would want to check your tie rod end where the drag link and tie rod intersect, and measure how much space there is between the tie rod and the housing on the tie rod end on the drag link.
michael Y. on -- Asked:
will this fit 06 jk ?
Currently we do not have a Cure for the Jeep JK, as they came with cross over steering and not the Y-link or T-link style linkage that this is designed for.
