Questions and Answers
Paul on -- Asked:
Will the work on a 2005 F350? Thanks
It will but you will need to take additional steps. This kit uses a 3/4" bolt to attach to the knuckles, but on the 2005+ Ford dana 60 axles, the large end of the existing taper is 7/8". You would need to drill the knuckles and pitman arm out to 1" and then use 1" x .120" DOM to sleeve it back down to the 3/4" bolt size(welding the sleeve in place)
Also, we would want to provide you with an extra inch or two of tubing for the tie rod, as the knuckles have a very wide mounting distance on these axles(about 61" long overall)
Eli on -- Asked:
Would this kit fit on my 2008 jk Sahara with 37inch tires and is it just the tie rod or is it also the drag link Answered:
This kit includes enough material to make a drag link and tie rod. This mounts through your knuckles and pitman arm using 3/4" bolts, and on the JK usually requires bend in the tubing to clear the differential cover and track bar. This is a fabricate to fit steering kit.
Jeremiah B. on -- Asked:
I'm running a Dana 30. Do i need a high steer knuckles. Can i use the stock knuckle?
You can use it without high steer knuckles, but you would need a small bend on each end of the tie rod for it to clear your differential cover and track bar mount on full turn. This is easiest to do with a hydraulic tube bender.
Matt on -- Asked:
What is the overall width of the heims from mounting surface to mounting surface including the misalignment spacers?
The narrow spacers that come for the tie rod are 1 5/8" overall, while the standard spacers and safety spacers for the drag link come out to be 2" overall width.
tony on -- Asked:
would this work for Dana 60 with high crossover steering
Yes. It is a DIY kit so you can cut and weld for your application. You will need to drill the knuckles and pitman arm out to run a 3/4" bolt.
chad on -- Asked:
Are these joints greasable?
They are not. We recommend a product called Tri-Flow to lubricate the heims during installation.
Rick G. on -- Asked:
Will they work with 2011 jeep jk Rubicon Answered:
You can make it work, but if you are mounting below the knuckle in the stock position, you would need a small bend on each side of the tie rod to clear the differential cover on full turn. Mounting the tie rod on top of the knuckle, you may be able to get away without adding a bend. Then the drag link has it's own mounting location on the passenger knuckle on the JK models.
You would need to drill the existing taper out to 3/4" in the knuckles and pitman arm to run a straight 3/4" bolt with this particular steering kit.
We do have a pre-assembled JK tie rod that runs offset GM 1 ton tie rod ends which allows you to get away with running a straight bar.
Matheu on -- Asked:
Im building a one ton xj right now and was wondering if this would work with a 1992 ball joint Dana 60? Will the knuckles be wide enough to ream them out to 3/4? Answered:
Yes they should have plenty of material to drill out he knuckles
Chris on -- Asked:
Will this kit work without an added high steer arm? I have a Rubicon d44 and was looking to mount it over the kknuckle
I would mount the drag link to the top of the knuckle and tie rod below the knuckle. Having both on top puts a lot more stress on the bolt and steering components. I would only run both on top if you have an experienced welder that can safely weld another bracket to the knuckle to box it in for a double sheer setup
Jason on -- Asked:
Would this kit work on a 2005 dodge cummins 2500
It will work with your AAM axle, you may need to put bends in the tie rod to clear the differential cover.
