i've been told the rock krawler tie rock can be driven off a cliff and still stay straight, I'm hoping to install mine soon, but everyone I wheel with swears by them so I'll pass along the recommondation.

also, if thats all you were doing, it cant be that bad. adjust your drag link to recenter the steering wheel, and if you really wanna pony up the cash, get an alignment. I've done far worse with my, replacing the tie-rod is more to prevent having constantly fix your steering than anything. even if its badly bent, you can just adjust the tie-rod to correct the toe-in

My wheels didnt turn to the right cuz I bent it up do much that the steering stabilizer would compress and hit the bracket it was mounted to... I had to rip the steering stabilizer off to make it out so kinda need a new tie rod that's strait so I can put that back on... And thanks for the advice... I like that it uses the end peice for the stock drag link then u can carry a spare to fix any of them it looks like

again, same situation as you. get a new steering stabilizer, and either get a flip kit, or just adjust the stock bracket on the tie rod. I'm not saying not to get a RK tie rod, but if the most immediate problem is you cant use your steering stabilizer, swapping the tie rod wont fix it; you still need a new stabilizer. I bent mine into a boomerang. put a new one one, and its slowly become bent, but it works, and I can turn my steering wheel fully from one side to another.

Nope nothing wrong with my stabilizer... My tie rid looks like a u shape... I had go take the stearing stab out to even make anything turn because with have the tie rod bent there was no room for the stabilizer.... And now if I try to turn to the right all the way my tie rid hits my axle rather not mess with something that bent... Rather get something different
