HD Steering Linkage

As our customers move to larger tires and more difficult terrain, the stock steering linkage takes a real beating.  So we offer heavy duty tie rods and draglinks to keep you steering straight.  All of our tubes are thick wall DOM tubing reamed for a precise thread fit rather than using thinner wall tubing with variable inside diameters.  You'll also notice we don't sleeve and weld our tie rods but rather use a single heavy wall tube for consistent, superior strength.

We have 2 different sizes of beefy DOM tubing available to fit just what you need. They are:

  • 1-1/4" x .250" wall - A good upgrade over stock for a little cheaper price.  Only available in 7/8" thread for Heim joints or tie rod ends.

    .

  • 1-1/2" x .375" wall - Heavier wall thickness and larger diameter make this a considerable step up over the stock tierod.  Not unbendable but definitely tough and won't leave you broken for sure.   Only available in 7/8" thread for Heim joints or tie rod ends.

Click here for steering stabilizers, stabilizer mounts and replacements tie rod ends and boots.

If you need even stronger linkage we can custom build 2" x .250 wall tierods, call for pricing as it's going to depend on your application.


This is our 1-1/2" x .375" wall tie rod.

For crossover steering draglinks, check our D44 or D60 crossover steering pages.  Draglinks available from either tube size but 1 1/4 is typically fine for a draglink since they generally can't get hit by trail obstacles.

Tie rods do not come with a provision for the steering stabilizer, our solution for that is a stabilizer mounting bracket.

Custom lengths and threads available.

ORD Built tie rods and draglinks
     

1 LH, 1 RH with jam nuts and castle nuts, 7/8"-18 thread

Our tie rod ends are a metal-on-metal design with a preload spring on the bearing race (sort of like the upper kingpin on a Dana 60), that helps keep the joint tight even as the parts wear.  Many joints are built with a plastic race that don't hold up well, see the picture below.  Addionally, the plastic ends don't appear to have a heat treat, our band saw flew right through them.  Notice the appearance of the metal-on-metal end (on the left), it was very difficult to cut due to the heat treat.
