I am in need of new steering linkage, and tie rod linkage while I’m at it. Everything is stock right now but adding a 3” lift within the next week. Stock rims for now but will eventually be adding 15” rims with 33x12.5 tires. Mostly a pavement princess, it’s the wife’s Jeep, but might see some sand and trails. Looking around I haven’t found anything with solid reviews under $500-$600. I know you get what you pay for but does she really need bomb proof?

I know it's expensive but as the saying goes "buy once, cry once" get the Currie Currectlync and never worry about your steering again.


I looked at it and it doesn’t say if it works with stock rims and eventually 15”, any experience to such? If not I can always call them.

I run the Savvy version and I have 15” wheels. No problems there.

The currectlync is really your only option.

Thanks, I should know better by now. I was hoping for a recommendation for something half the price, but I guess it is what it is. Hahaha.... Like you guys said “ buy once, cry once “.

Is there any real difference between the Savvy and the Currectlync? Other than Savvy being aluminum.

So it says I need at least 4” of lift, I’m only lifting 3”. Any other good options or ideas?

Take a look at the ZJ steering upgrade. More than adequate for a rig that won’t be subjected to hard wheeling.
x2 on this. very stout setup for 33's. i've been waiting for it to fail me with 35's. i'm all for currie and will likely go that route if my ZJ setup ever fails, but it is probably overkill for your application

here's a walk through with part numbers

Thanks for all the help / options.

If I go the ZJ option, what do I use for a draglink setup? A ZJ draglink, stock TJ draglink or something else?

My link has the ZJ draglink and track bar included too. Running 35s on most of my Jeeps, I've never bent the draglink. The stock tie rod will bend making a U-turn in the Walmart parking lot and hitting the curb with 35s.

You don't need anything except the ZJ tie rod. Most people don't even need that. Listen to Ironhead Jed. I bet this guy has an HD (Harley Davidson) too.

Thanks to all.....

I ended up going with the ZJ conversion. I called several of the companies suggested and no one could give me an answer if it would work with my setup.

Zj steering will hold up well. Especially for something that mostly sees pavement.
