The quality of Steer Smarts products is second to none! I installed the SS tie rod, drag link flip*, track bar (with relocation bracket). The difference in handling was night and day over stock. I took my first off road trip since changing these components only to find out that the drag link would hit my sway bar when the passenger side was fully compressed. I emailed SS for some guidance and received a response the next day with several questions written in what appeared to me to be a defensive tone. I responded to the questions but, to date, have not received any further response. With no further guidance from the company I did some research and found the problem with the drag link flip isn't an isolated issue. Long story short I went ahead and bought the link end for the lower mount and this piece to allow me to lower my track bar back down to the stock location and all is well. Like I said the products are great but SS needs to be a little more helpful in the customer service area. I wasn't complaining rather, I was looking for direction in how to fix it.
I installed Steer Smarts tie rod, draglink and track bar assy. I wanted to stay with the stock steering stabilizer for now so I added the Steer Smarts steering stabilizer and dampener bracket. The parts are very stout, were easy to install and made my front end feel very solid and stable. Now my steering stabilizer is mounted up out of harms way. I highly recommend this setup for Jeep JL/JLU owners. Tom J.
