Rusty's Aluminum HD Steering System - JK Wrangler - Drag Link Flip Configuration

IMPORTANT FITMENT NOTE: This drag link is set up for a drag link flip configuration and requires a minimum of 4" of lift to be installed. 

The JK's factory steering linkage is complicated and features compound angles that don't respond well to lifts over any heights and the system has also proven to have a few weak points. The Rusty's Steering for 2007-2018 JK Wranglers is beefier than anything on the market and addresses the factory shortcomings while adding significant strength all at the same time! With the JK being over 10 years old there are many needing steering replacements, well there are many companies out there with parts , look at them all and you will see that with the Rusty's Steering Kit there is nothing out there as massive, strong, easy to install and has the great price it has.

Rusty's HD Aluminum Steering System for the JK Wrangler works great as a stand-alone replacement upgrade and creates a steering system that is nearly indestructible! Sold as a complete unit that includes the complete tie rod and drag link assemblies with ends, plus a steering stabilizer bracket. Rusty's JK Steering System starts with a massive machined 1.825 diameter solid 7075 T6 aluminum for both the tie rod and the drag link. Equally massive 1.25 threaded zinc plated forged adjustable ends thread into the machined 7075 aluminum with jam nuts and HD steering stabilizer bracket. The tie rod ends on the tie rod come with Rusty's wiper seals to prevent rotation of the tie rod which can lead to a dead spot if the steering flops back and fourth. The massive 7075 aluminum rods are finished up by polishing them to an almost "chrome " finish that will give your vehicle whether a trail queen or a mall crawler a great look.

On Non - Rubicon models with factory sport or factory steel wheels, a 1/4 inch front spacer may be required. Since the Rusty's tie rod ends are so massive they make contact with the edge of the factory wheels.  All after market custom wheels will have no issues.
