Hate crumpling tie rods as soon as you lock the front? Just looking for some extra confidence in your steering while you are out? Dont want to pay $1000+ for heim steering that makes your steering rack the weak point? Look no further. These simply replace your outer tie rod end jam nut, still allowing the tie rod to be the "fuse" in the steering assembly while still offering a bump in strength and reliability.
Starting out of 1" round stock steel, these are machined down to have a full hex head for adjustment. They are bored out to slide over the factory tie rod with a little slack, and threaded at the one end as they replace your jam nut ( some aftermarket tie rods are larger diameter, so make sure your set is necked down at the inner boot like factory or is a factory tie rod). To best protect against rust and corrosion, these are gold zinc plated. These are going to block the adjustment hex on the tie rod, so you will need to use a slip jaw/clamp style tool to make alignment adjustments. Be aware that with the variety of suspension and alignment setups these may run on parts or pieces as you cycle steering (generally for folks running non Tacoma specific shocks, see pics for clearance on a Toyota specific shock at full lock - plenty of room) This is no different than any upgraded steering set up as the OD is the same.
