Awesome Product

I have had this on my Jeep for almost a year and been off roading all over the country including 11 Jeep BOH trails. Went in easy, improved the steering and have had no problems. If you set it up correctly the clamps do not catch on rocks and are still easy to adjust when the steering wheel needs tweaked after some rough wheeling. All in all VERY happy.

Regretting the purchase and price paid

I was going to buy the fusion 4x4 aluminum tie rod, and drag link, went with the yeti parts instead and I’m regretting it. The pinch clamps are more like blocks to get caught on rocks makes no sense. Will be ordering the fusion and taking the loss on the yeti. The steering got worse with the yeti attenuator. It wonders all over the place now. It wasn’t doing it before the yeti parts got installed. Over priced and not thought out for the tie rod linkage.

Drag link noise

I installed my new yeti drag link and yeti tie rod assembly cause I read reviews say it will get rid of the flop noise (play in the ball joint). But I’m still getting the same play and noise in the ball joint. Also Tried to contact but no response.

We have indeed contacted you about the zerk fitting and given a few solutions, including sending you a replacement zerk fitting. Your rating seems a little harsh for a zerk fitting that we've offered to replace.

***NOTE*** A minimum lift height of 4.5-5" ( and correct bump stop) is required for a top-mount draglink. Minimum height requirements will vary by lift manufacturer - please contact us if you are unsure. Part #79022001 (Track Bar Relocation Bracket) is necessary when flipping your draglink - it maintains proper track bar and draglink geometry. For those running METAL CLOAK Lifts, we do not recommend a top mount draglink for their lift kits d/t interference issues.

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

The YETI XD Draglinks are a complete bolt-on draglinkThe YETI XD Draglinks install in just minutes and bolts to the factory tapered knuckle hole and the factory pitman arm hole.

 

Features

YETI XD DRAGLINK WITH GRIFFIN XD ASSEMBLY:
  • Easy bolt-on installation.
  • Griffin XD Attenuator for the highest level of on-road and off-road stability and performance.
  • 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 JL.
  • 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 hardenability 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 linkage.
    GRIFFIN XD ATTENUATOR: 
    • Reduces harsh and negative feedback to your steering wheel.
    • 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.
    • E-coated for a long lasting appearance under harsh conditions.
    • Internal threads and tube are also e-coated for long term serviceability.
    • Designed for the proper clearance to other chassis components to eliminate interferences.
    • Patented Design.

    *Draglink fits all left-hand drive JL Wrangler (models 2018+) and JT Gladiator (including Rubicon and Unlimited.

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

    **Jeeps equipped with Anniversary Edition Factory Skid plates will need to slightly modify skid plate for clearance with GriffinXD

    **JT Mojave Gladiator is not currently compatible with the attenuator d/t clearance issues with the factory skid plate. It can be used if the skid plate is removed or if modified.
