World Suspension on ebay, I've used his ends for years with no failures and he is way cheaper than Moog

thank you so much, what about rugged ridge or curie?

Ibuildembig 11-16-2010 03:32 PM

Ohhh I didnt know you wanted to go that expensive....honestly I have no opinion on those since I make my own when it comes to that point. Sorry, I thought you wanted to keep it stock :)

I have the money right know so i dont mind spending it im just confused on what the part is. Is a tie rod and drag link the same thing?

Ok this is easy...

Tie rod is the bar connects the knuckles together. Its the longest bar on the bottom. It consists of 3 pieces, 2 end joints and an adjuster sleeve

Drag link is the bar that connects the steering box to the passenger side, the shorter of the two...same 3 pieces.

Both the links appear to be the same part to me...dunno

I have the Currie system on my TJ. It's major BEEF. I bought mine used from a friend but it was still like new.

Currie with the Savvy tie rod for the win!! All the beef of the Currie setup but the Savvy TR flexes and returns to the original shape. Savvy Offroad if you really want to spend the money and not worry about it ever again.

Devildog I am going to say no to your setup unless you have some 1ton knuckles. The Savvy TR is a beast agreed, but that beast when it bends then bends back will break stock knuckles. The HD currie setup is great for 99 percent of the jeeps out there.

and 1 ton knuckles are worthless on a 30 front.....just get a 60 and be done with it :)
