05-Current Ford Super Duty Steering Kit
Tie Rod and Drag Link to replace oem 05-C f250 / f350 set. These are parts we have made for years but have not made a track bar or brackets to compliment. Current works with the OEM track bar. It will only get better when we finish that set of parts.
When we had a ‘17-21 truck with stock wheels and tires go back to the dealership for death wobble at 40k, (replacement tie rod and drag link) and then the same problem and replacement parts again before 75k, we knew it was better to release these parts without our track bar project being finished than to wait.
Now with our heavy duty 1.5” .250 wall steel dom tubing tie rod and drag link, the truck “drives better than it ever did”.
So this is specifically available for 17-21+, but fits 05-16 just as well, in conjunction with the stock track bar.
The tie rod and drag link need to be used together as a component set.
The drag link can work with an adjustable track bar up to 4” of lift, and of course that would all be extended with a track bar drop bracket and a dropped pitman of equal distance. It also allows you to lower your truck and still center the steering wheel.
(The ‘68 truck shown in pictures is on an ‘06 SD chassis with 4” of lift, stock pitman and an adjustable track bar bracket at frame end)
We will have an axle end track bar conversion bracket as well as track bar and frame end drop bracket to reduce ford bump steer as soon as we can. Those processes are started but we have a lot of other projects going on at the same time.
OE STABILIZER Will NOT work. See Stabilizer Options.
We built a steering stabilizer on this 17-21 and moved it down stream to the tie rod, rather than the drag link, which helps it have the opportunity to stabilize more parts in the event of wear to control death wobble so that death wobble doesn’t have to be the worn parts indicator. This particular truck was lowered a little so we built a steering stabilizer on a hd 3/8 thick steel off road diff cover, and although it is not a high clearance design focused on off-road, it works well and will allow for full suspension compression. Space available indicates why ford put it up high, but it’s stock shortcomings are obvious.
This kit used our ultra strong heat treated chromoly rod ends. An awesome part for the application, but not quite for everyone. With available (click here rubber boots) they can be maintained for years to come but are not approved in some areas with strict vehicle inspections. So although they would be a racer preferred part, and greatly out-do the stock component in strength and durability, it needs to be identified as an off road only application. But that’s how we would prefer to classify any oem tie rod end because they aren’t safe enough for the street either under such consideration.
Required modifications include drilling out the pitman arm to 3/4, and slightly reaming the driver side knuckle to the same. We have a reamer available click (HERE) that greatly reduces the effort required to do this with a drill bit.
