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.

3 day shipping/$30.. still waiting

Since I was asked to write a review, all I can say is I paid extra to get the drag link shipped faster (3 days) and it's been 8 days and no delivery.
So I can't review the part itself, but I should have purchased it somewhere else that would've arrived in less time for free shipping. Can't wait to install my new drag link whenever it shows up.

You paid for ground shipping, not 3 day. You ordered on March 9th, the products were shipped on March 10th. Our normal turn around time is 2 business days processing, so we got your product out faster than it would have been normally and sent it the speed that you paid for. The cost is based on the size and weight of the package, the distance it's traveling, and whether it's going to a home or business. 3 days transit is the normal time from Michigan to Colorado. The order was sent out on a Wednesday which means it may be delivered on Saturday, or it might wait until Monday. It was on truck and scheduled to be delivered on Saturday but was delayed d/t a weather event in your area. It is unclear why you are leaving a negative product review when the issue you have is with delivery being delayed to a weather event in your area. This does not make any sense. Again - you did not pay extra for 3 day, you paid for ground shipping, which is not guaranteed in any way, shape, or form.

Awesome!

I couldn’t be happier with this upgrade. My stock tie rod, drag link, track bar, and sway bar end links we’re clunky and felt cheap to drive. After replacing them all with Steersmarts, I feel like I have a totally new vehicle.

These are so beefy. I feel confident that they will last a very long time. They’re easy to install and adjust. Everything about them screams high quality.

My Jeep feels like it’s gripping the road a lot better now. I’ve already had multiple people comment on how great it drives. I used to avoid certain bumps on the freeway or back off from some off-roading challenges, but now I feel more confident. Bring it on!

Thanks to Andy for all the help! It’s rare to find a company with people that are so passionate.

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.
