Update

Have now had opportunity to drive my JKU with steer smarts drag link and tie rod along with PCS Big bore. An amazing transformation for the better. Decided to not reinstall the steering stabilizer at this time because I'm so pleased with the results of this setup.

Excellent Customer Service

....I have not unpackaged my steer smart products as I am waiting on on the the rest of my build. But, many thanks for helping me decide on what Steer Smart products for my particular build.

Superior Product with Superior Drive!

What the industry has needed to make a stock to lifted Jeep drive right! For anyone to say it's a Jeep! They just drive like that is wrong! My JK on 40" tires drives down the highway at 75 and 80 with 1 hand on the wheel in normal conditions to side wind and rough road conditions and no issues. It drives and handles better than factory ever did! Best money and upgrade ever spent!!!

Best quality and engineering!

Installed bottom mount xd drag link on my ‘08 Jk along with aluminum xd pro tie rod assembly and pro xd track bar. I’m running a fox ats stabilizer and my difference in steering is huge. I couldn’t be more satisfied! It was worth all the waiting and the money . I personally guarantee anybody who I let drive my Jeep will be ordering soon. Great customer service and great products that have the quality and engineering put into them.

Great Customer Service and High Quality Parts

I bought the Yedi XD aluminum Tie Rod and Yedi XD Drag Link (bottom mount) for my JK. (review posted under both products)

They're not installed yet (too cold out), but just picking them up you can tell these are seriously well built parts. Both the quality and the beefiness are impressive. Everything was solidly packed in very heavy corrugated cardboard (all recyclable).

SteerSmarts customer service is awesome. They were super helpful answering all my questions and found the best solution to get my order to a very rural area in Canada. They made the whole thing simple, and I had an excellent experience dealing with them.

YETI XD™ Bottom Mount 1½-ton Draglink 

 by Steer Smarts Part number: 78064001

 

STEER SMARTS™ is proud to present our most EXTREME steering linkage “The YETI XD™ Series” linkage for your Jeep JK Wrangler. We applied our 85 years of steering “lessons learned” to develop the strongest most durable linkage ever built for the Wrangler. 

The YETI XD Bottom Mount Draglink is a complete bolt-on draglink The YETI XD bottom mount installs in just minutes and bolts to the factory tapered knuckle hole and the factory pitman arm hole.

 

Features

YETI XD DRAGLINK ASSEMBLY:
  • Easy bolt-on installation.
  • Engineered for proper clearance to other chassis components to eliminate interferences.
  • MADE IN THE USA
BALL JOINTS:
  • 30mm 1 1/2 Ton ball joints designed specifically for the JK.
  • Cold headed medium carbon alloy steel ball studs provide incredible impact toughness for extreme duty usage.
  • Induction heat treated ball studs provide ultimate fatigue strength and superior off-road durability.
  • Steel on steel bearings provide exceptional ball joint wear resistance and robustness.
  • High quality seals ensure long ball joint life. Our superior seals have been rigorously tested to minimize leakage between grease service intervals which greatly improves our ball joint reliability over our competition.
  • Fully greaseable.
DRAGLINK ENDS:
  • Powder coat over E-coat for a long lasting appearance under harsh conditions.
  • External threads are e-coated for durability and long term serviceability.
  • Forged from medium carbon high harden-ability steel and heat treated for greater buckling, impact, and fatigue strength.
  • Forged from medium carbon high hardenability steel and heat treated for even greater buckling, impact, and fatigue strength.
  • Large 1 ¼ inch rolled threads at tie rod adjuster and draglink ends provide significantly increased strength over the original equipment threads.
  • Unique “Reverse Pin” technology prevents our linkage from flopping or rocking. This technology is built into the socket unlike the weak external supports on some competitor linkages.

ADJUSTER TUBE: 

  • Draglink adjuster is manufactured from large diameter ¼ inch thick wall high strength 4130 Chromoly steel tubing for maximum buckling strength.
  • Adjuster clamps assure proper clamp force using conventional tools without the possible risk of loosening like large jam nuts.
  • Designed with right hand and left hand threads for quick and easy adjustment when installed on the vehicle.
  • Internal threads and tube are also e-coated for long term serviceability.

Draglink fits all left hand drive JK Wrangler models 2007 to 2017 including Rubicon and Unlimited.

Note: A minimum of 17”wheels is recommended. 16" wheels with a maximum 4.5 back spacing might fit but not guaranteed.
