    Default Bent tie rod

    So i managed to bend my tie rod so I'm planning on a bunch of crap while im at it. Just wondering what you guys think are good brands to check out. I'm
    grabbing new tie rod, drag link, track bar front / rear, quick disco's, 1 in motor/ body lift and last but not least adjustable control arms.

    check out Currie Enterprises

    http://www.currieenterprises.com/ces...s.aspx?id=1234

    I've had personal experience with the anti-rock sway bars I would highly recommend them and you can get them for front and rear

    for steering check out Ballistic

    there are other beefy after market steering components out there, example I have one ton rods & ends on my YJ that helped me stop bending stuff.

    I have the Teraflex Hi-Steer set up with their S/T Sway Bar disconnect. The S/T Sway Bar set up I love. I had bent the sway bar twice, but it can be straightened, unlike the factory one, I have since flipped it above the knuckle and have not had any issues, however this eliminated the steering stabilizer (it no longer fits) and my steering can be a little vague at times. If I had to do it over again, I think I would use the Currie set up.

    I use the tie rod and sleeve out 98 V-8 Grand. The tie-rod is solid not hollow like the stock TJ one is. It works great, not as much money as other replacements. It allows you to use the stock drag link. It isn't often you bend a drag link, stock one is usually adequate. I have wheeled hard with it on 33s and 35s and still on the original stock drag link. Pretty much everything else up front has been repealed twice at least to include hubs, U joints, tie rods and ends.
