Questions and Answers
allan on -- Asked:
I have a Currie Heavy Duty Steering kit on a 2006 TJ. Currie uses 7/8" threads on their tie rod ends. Can the GM one be drilled out an extra 1/8"?
That is the measurement of the threaded shank going into the linkage. They use a hybrid joint that has a 1 ton housing but the smaller Jeep tapered pin where the cure would install. We do not have a cure that would properly fit their tie rod ends
Kev on -- Asked:
Will the cure wor on my 2001 Jeep Wrangler sport. Answered:
Yes it should as long as it still has the factory steering linkage
Bob R. on -- Asked:
how many of these are required to order to square away my steering issue on my stock 95 YJ ?
Only one. It mounts where the drag link and tie rod intersect.
Greg D. on -- Asked:
Does the cure work on a 1980 Jeep CJ5 with power steering. From videos I assume I would only need one on the passenger side and not all joints if it works on the year and model right?
This will work on the CJ's that came from factory with Y-link/T-link style steering.
Some of the CJ's came with crossover steering which had a separate mounting point on the passenger knuckle for the drag link. We do not recommend this for mounting at the knuckle or pitman arm, only where the drag link and tie rod intersect each other.
Chris on -- Asked:
Is the cure made for the Gm y link 1 ton Answered:
This particular Cure is for factory Jeep steering linkage. It does not fit aftermarket like Moog.
The white Cure is for GM 1 ton ends.
Brandon on -- Asked:
Will this work on a 99 WJ? Answered:
I believe all the WJ's came with cross-over style steering(drag link mounts independently to the passenger knuckle from the tie rod) instead of y-link or t-link.
This product is only for y-link and T-link steering
Mike on -- Asked:
Will the R2008 work for my ZJ steering with a V8 engine or do I need the larger one ton version? Answered:
If you have the factory steering linkage still, you will run the black Jeep Cure. I've installed this on my stock 98 5.2 Jeep ZJ.
Ray K. on -- Asked:
How do you tell if you have a y or t link steering. 76 cj7 Answered:
Your tie rod and drag link will intersect and connect to each other and you will only have one mounting location on the passenger knuckle instead of a separate mounting hole for the drag link and the tie rod.
Bruce on -- Asked:
Will this tie rod end " the cure" fit a 1978 cj7?
Many of the CJ's came with "cross-over" style steering from factory, which has two separate mounting locations for the drag link and tie rod to mount independently on the passenger knuckle. The Cure is NOT for this application.
If your CJ came with Y-link or T-link style steering from factory, then the cure would work on your factory steering linkage. We have found many aftermarket replacement sets such as Moog, the housing's are made thicker and cannot fit the black Jeep Cure over them. Currie and Synergy steering systems we have found the white 1 ton Cure fits best while leaving the grease boot on the tie rod end and shaving the face of the Cure as needed to allow the tie rod end to fully seat and torque without "pinching" the Cure.
Chris R. on -- Asked:
Will the 1 ton cure fit on a currie steering system?
It will work but you will have to leave the dust boot on the tie rod end as it has a smaller tapered end making it so our cure won't retain the grease
Ernest on -- Asked:
The "Cure" is not made for the 07, 08, 09 and new JK?
Correct the JK's have cross over steering whereas the older jeeps are Y link. These are only recommended to be mounted where the drag link mounts to the tie rod in Y link style steering setups. They tend to crack and fail when placed on the knuckles
Dave on -- Asked:
I have an 01 Cherokee XJ. Kind of confused (pretty common for me!) So how many would I buy. I am guessing 2 on the drag link? Thanks!
You would only use one where the drag link and tie rod intersect. This will work on the factory linkage, but we have found many aftermarket applications have a larger housing(Moog, etc).
Calder on -- Asked:
Just purchased this for my YJ. What is the cure made of? What material? Metal, plastic, ceramic?
This is made out of a material called Delrin. Which is a stiff, low friction plastic they call a "thermoplastic".
David on -- Asked:
Do you guys offer a Cure for the steering on a 1997 ZJ with the V8? or could one of them be modified to work?
I just installed the black Jeep Cure onto my 1998 ZJ with 5.2 with factory linkage yesterday. There may be differences in sizing of the housing around the joint between tie rod end manufacturers(Chrysler, napa, orielly, etc). The 'cup' of the cure does need to fit over the housing. If you can remove the grease boot off your tie rod end where the drag link and tie rod intersect, you can measure that diameter to make sure the Cure will fit over it. The Jeep Cure measures out to 1.420" with micrometer while my tie rod end measured about 1.408".
I did need to shave some material off the face off the cure to allow the stud to fully seat and not pinch and break the Cure. It should fit snug, but when fully torqued you should still be able to rotate the cure with your fingers, but should have minimal to no wobble. When mocking it up, check that the cure still rotates once you start feeling some resistance on the castle nut. If it will not rotate, remove and shave. Repeat this until you are able to Torque it to spec.
The Larger Jeep tie rod end housings we have found the white cure works best while leaving the grease boot on instead of removing it.
Kyle on -- Asked:
Where is this product manufactured?
These are 100% American made.
David on -- Asked:
Will you Ship to Australia?
Yes, we ship to most countries
rich on -- Asked:
so it would fit a 84 CJ7???
A Later model CJ could be either a T link or crossover style steering setup. The T link is the most common. Check yours for a Tie Rod with a hole in it midway down the draglink from the steering box. That is a T link and these are made for both T link and Y link style steering, not Crossover.
