Reno33 Well, I just talked myself out of the ZJ / TJ conversion. I didn't take into account the cost of the new Drag link, when added to the Tie-rod $, it costs around 300 dollars. Given I can get a Currectlync Heavy-Duty Tie Rod System for around 450. its not such an appealing alternative.

I'll look carefully at Iron Rock Over-Knuckle offering , yet I'll probably wind up going for the Curry after all,

Owen_TJ I have the iron rock offroad system and love it...its been wheeling and dd'd by me for the last 6 months or so. Would recommend it for sure

Although I understand the ZJ & TJ Drag Link are identical, is there a stronger (or adjustable) one that is recommended?

I just bought these part #s, but I don't want to use the old Drag Link, which has 117K miles on it.

Pretty much 2 options only:

A. ZJ Tie rod upgrade for $60(Or buy entire new lifetime warranty steering linkage including tie rod, TRE's, drag link, adjusting clamps for $120)

B. Currie Correct lync for $400

The Currie product is really good and strong, but ridiculously over priced. I can buy 3 full sets of COMPLETE ZJ/TJ steering components w/lifetime warranty for the price of the Currie Correct Lync(Which I don't believe has any "warranty" on bending or damage).

In this case the Currie product, or specifically the price charged does not make sense.

Beats paying $400 for the Currie setup, which is stronger, but not by as much as some people think. With the money saved I got other steering upgrades, like a steering box brace(M.O.R.E.) and skid plate(MC). For 33" and 35" tires its really all that's needed unless you just use and abuse your steering components when you wheel.
