I don't know anything about that system but I do know a thing or two about steering. Spend the money and get a proven system. Currie gets my vote with ORO not too far behind.


(just my .02 )

It looks pretty solid but there's the other costs such as
(From the website)
In order to install this kit OTK on coil sprung front Jeeps you MUST:
Remove sway bar end link mounts (axle side.)
Cut/Remove Factory Steering Stabilizer mount.
Trim the front of the Coil Buckets.
Drill and Ream the Knuckles from the top.
Adjust the steering stops.

We also RECOMMEND:
That you replace/relocate your sway bar endlinks mounts (axle side.)
That you brace the inside front of your coil buckets.
Depending on what frameside trackbar bracket your running, you may want to relocate the axle side trackbar bracket above the axle. It's just a matter of matching the angle of the trackbar and draglink.

So in the end it might end up costing the same as the Currie.

Send a message via AIM to Triple88a Send a message via MSN to Triple88a Send a message via Yahoo to Triple88a Send a message via Skype™ to Triple88a
so no steering stabilizer after this?

what about all the piping you need or can you use stock stuff? From what i can see this just replaces the ball joints.

A steering stabilizer isn't always necessary.

It would be a good setup, but DW you'll be doing at least that amount of work on your rig to get it ready especially if you have to buy a reamer and the bit you need for the knuckles. The Currie setup is bolt in and go.

And Scout is right. If your front end is setup right and true then you have no need for a steering stabilizer at all.

I dunno but that design looks like it might produce bump steer. I say stick with the Currie which as already said is a tried and proven product. I'm running the Currie and while even its tie rod can be bent if the forces are great enough, it's still the best bolt-on design out there.
