Features

YETI XD TIE ROD 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.
TIE ROD 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: 

  • Tie Rod 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.

* Tie Rod fits all left hand drive JK Wrangler models 2007 to 2017 including Rubicon and requires a 1 5/8" diameter damper bracket that is not included. Check out the YETI XD Damper Bracket.

Note: A minimum of 17”wheels is recommended.

    Quality all the way

    If just going by weight, you’re getting your moneys worth. Installing this alone can double as your workout for the day. Very solid and highly impressed with the product.

    Solved my steering problem but created another!

    Installed the Yeti XD tie rod and noticed there wasn't much clearance from the tie rod end to the dust shields. After a few days my rotors started to rub the the dust shields due to the tie rod ends pushing the dust shields towards the rotors. Now I have to either remove the dust shields or remove the tie rod.

    Yeti HD tie rod

    Built in America. Big and beefy. I have installed this with the steering stabilizer and stabilizer mount. I previously installed the red trac bar. This has completely cured my death wobble. I have been trying to rid DW for a while. Every one has an opinion including shops. Bottom line. I think the stock stuff is flimsy. SteerSmarts products are quality. They work. Good bye DW. Thanks SteerSmarts!
