    Hello all!

    I want to beef up my front end with a heavy duty tie rod and draglink setup. What will work? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Reason I ask is because the current stock tie rod is about 1" from my leaf springs. The stock ends are turned down to provide more clearance. I was hoping to go with Moog ends and with either a Rockrod or one from Offroad designs. Also, I do not want to convert to a "high steer" setup.

    Any and all help is much appreciated. Thank you! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    i got all my standard crossover (non-histeer) stuff from Rockstomper. Definitely beefy. I just got some new steering arms off of pirate that will lemme me put the tierod behind/above the axle... wont get hit by anything then. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    anyway, rockstomper is good stuff and relatively inexpensive...

    I just talked to Scott at Rockstomper the other day. They are currently not making the Rockrods due to steel prices and quality.... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Which sucks!!! But they produce great parts and the rockrods hold up well!

    Check out Sky-Manufacturing. I run their crossover and HD tie-rod. It's pretty beefy stuff for a great price /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
