Heavy duty tierod ends?

Anybody know if they make a heavy duty tre for us?

Busted another boot and was wondering if they make something stronger that might help keep me from busting boots.

I figure if they were stronger and didn't move around so much I'd have less chances of ripping another one.

Thanks.

Can't you get custom made ones? My buddy that races his Duramax broke one of his one night, and seems like he had his custom made.

that would be way too much money to put into an IFS system on a ranger haha


you could swap over to a conventional steering system with a steering box, i remember seeing someone with an explorer do that.

What about this setup? It sounds like it may work with stock because it says "Available +4.5" wider for use with our LT suspension kit". I don't know what they mean by available, maybe they have to kits one is stock width and one for the LT kit.

a 3/4 ton TRE off an H2 is smaller than the ranger ones.. i might be exaggerating a little.. but they're tiny


then you have to make sure they'll thread onto the inner tre.

Rockauto has moog's for about $25 a outer TRE. Lifetime alignment's run about $100-150 and you can align it anytime you want pretty much.
