This cure is for the OEM Jeep Y link steering and is designed around the OEM Jeep tie rod end. Use on any other steering kit is at your discretion. If you are using our upgraded GM 1 ton steering linkage for your Jeep please see part number R1768
Very similar to our product "The Cure" but specifically made to work with a factory Jeep steering set up in the Y-link or inverted T style steering position, using the stock tie rods. If running aftermarket GM 1 ton steering please see our other cure.

The Cure gives a self lubricated, fixed yet slightly flexible surface for the tie rod to rest against. The drag link does not flop forward or backward whatsoever yet in common usage it is allowed to roll which causes the steering wheel dead spot and allows for the tie rod roll. Also fits multiple 1/2 Ton solid axle trucks (Ford, Chevy and Dodge).

Not for use on tie rod ends at the knuckle or pitman arm. Fits most factory linkage of the below models, some shaving of cure may be required to get a snug fit without breaking the cure.
  • 1997 to 2006 TJ Wrangler, Rubicon and Unlimited
  • 1984 to 2001 XJ Cherokee
  • 1986 to 1992 MJ Comanche
  • 1987 to 1996 YJ Wrangler
  • 1993 to 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ
When installing The Cure for Jeep, be sure to verify that the pin on your tie rod end seats completely in the taper.

Manufacturing tolerances in the pin and the taper cause some tie rod ends to seat higher or lower in the taper than others. One sign that the taper is not completely seated is if the cotter pin hole does not sit as far through the castle nut as it did with the standard dust boot. To verify your pin is seated in the taper, apply a marking compound (like gear marking compound, grease, lipstick, etc.) to the pin and tighten down the tie rod end then remove it again. Check the pin and taper to see if the marking compound is spread thinly and evenly around the pin. If it does not spread evenly, the pin is likely not seated completely. Sand down the face of The Cure for Jeep until the pin seats fully.

Depending on the shape of your tie rod ends, some filing may also be required to prevent interferences around the lip or face of The Cure.

The Cure for Jeep is only meant to be used on the drag link tie rod end in Y-link steering. Using The Cure for Jeep at the steering knuckle and pitman arm tie rod ends will not allow necessary flex in your steering system and could lead to failure of your tie rod ends, The Cure, or other steering components.

The cure for a xj
Shawn Padgett (Missouri) | February 28th, 2023
I got my cure when doing the zj upgrade tie rod bar and it didn't fit at all, the thickness and angles just would not work. But, then I filed it down to a correct angle so it fit perfectly and I trimmed the rubber boot. Now my cure fits inside the rubber and is wedged inside the gap so it functions perfectly. It has totally tightened up my steering and I have almost zero slop in my steering wheel. I will say that doing your tow in to 1/8 is 100% important to getting a solid end result.

The Cure solves the steering slop with an easy installation and easy fit. It cuts the slop to a minimal making handling and driving on the road and trails much easier!!! Everyone who wheels or has a Jeep in my family now runs these!!!
Best return for your money from an “upgrade”

This thing is outstanding. I have only had it installed one day so far but what a difference it made! I hope it continues without issue, but first impression is great. The install only took about 15 minutes.

I put this on my 05 lifted tj with 35s and wow! At the moment Iam running stock steering components and hated the way the jeep handled. It just felt a little looser than I wanted. This truely is a CURE! I immediately noticed that my steering was tighter and had significantly reduced dead spots in the steering! I highly recommend!
