    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the TeraFlex HD tie rod and drag link kit, fitting all 2007 and up JKs. This kit is also available in a flip kit. And each of these pieces are available independently. However, if you're looking to upgrade your full steering, this is a nice kit that includes both pieces. Today we're going to talk through the installation of these parts onto your JK, which is a very simple one out of three wrench installation. This is going to take you under two hours to get these installed and adjusted properly. And there is no major modification to your Wrangler necessary. We're also going to talk through the construction and a few of the other features of this kit. If you do some hard-core wheeling with your Jeep and/or you have really large tires on your Wrangler, a set-up like this is going to provide a ton of strength, which is going to help in a lot of different ways. When you are off-road, the factory tie rod is very exposed. And it's very easy to bang it into a rock or a stump and bend it, which can ruin your day of off-roading. So upgrading to a much stronger version like this is, certainly, a good idea. And updating your drag link when you have large tires can get rid of what would, otherwise, feel like a wobble. You can actually have your factory drag link bend a little bit when you are off-road hitting big bumps with large tires. So upgrading to a much stronger than factory drag link will take care of that situation on the road. And having the additional strength off-road gives you the ability to wheel your Jeep hard without the worry of bending any of your steering components. As far as drag link and tie rod kits go, this is one of the heaviest-duty set-ups that you can buy. It does have a little bit of a higher price tag on it, but when you consider how much stress these parts are taking off-road, in my opinion, this is one of those areas where you should spend a little bit more money, as long as you're getting more quality for your dollar. And I think that's the case with this set-up. And this comes with very strong components that are, also, adjustable. These tie rod ends here from TeraFlex are not only greasable, but they're also adjustable with the spanner wrench. You just have to loosen a couple of set screws. And then you can tighten up the pre-load arms. So if they ever do start to wear on you, if you feel like you do have a little bit of additional play, you can go through and tighten everything up. You don't have to replace anything. It doesn't cost you anything. You can tighten up the pre-load on those tie rod ends, and any wobble will be gone. And that's not something that can be said about a lot of the other steering set-ups on the market. They may be very strong, but if they do eventually wear out, you're going to be purchasing new replacement parts. With these, you can adjust them. TeraFlex says that this set-up is over 200% stronger than factory. And I absolutely believe it, after taking these parts out of the box and actually handling them. These are very, very heavy-duty. This tie rod is 1.6 inches in outer diameter. And your drag link is going to be an inch and a quarter in outer diameter. Your tie rod ends are both made of 4140 chrome alloy that's also been heat-treated for additional strength. And everything about this set-up screams strength. And your tie rod is going to have one standard thread and one opposite thread tie rod. So you can adjust it on the Jeep. Of course, it has some nice large stop nuts to make sure everything stays tight where you put it. And your drag link is going to have a more factory-style sleeve adjuster so that you can make sure you get your steering wheel nice and centered. But, again, something that I said, I mentioned before, and something I really like about this set-up is these tire rod ends right here. They are greasable. They have a recessed grease fitting. So you're not going to tear the grease fitting off ever. It's always gonna be there, accessible, but also protected. But if you loosen up a couple of set screws around the outside and you have your spanner wrench, you can tighten down the pre-load on that tie rod end, and getting rid of any play that might occur over a long period of wheeling your Jeep really hard. And, again, that is not something you get from a lot of places. If you are looking to upgrade your steering, why wouldn't you upgrade to a system that could be the last one you'll ever have to buy because it's very strong. And when your tie rod ends do start to wear, you can simply tighten them up. And, if you can't tighten them up enough, they have a snap ring on them where you can take them apart and you can rebuild them. Again, not something you find in a lot of other places. I think that this is a very, very well-built system. And if you have the budget for it, it might be the last steering system you'll have to buy for your JK. So, in my opinion, it's worth the cost. Now, because this system is so heavy-duty and these tie rod ends are so large and beefy, you do have to have a 17-inch wheel, if you're running OE wheels, in order to fit these tie rod ends on your steering knuckles. So you do have to be a little bit concerned about wheel size and back spacing with this set-up, but that's going to be the case with any set-up that has very strong, over-sized tie rod ends. I said before that getting this installed in your Jeep is a very simple process, about two hours by the time you get your old system removed, get the new system in place, and get everything adjusted properly. So the first step is, of course, removing your old system. You're going to have some castle nuts. You'll have to remove cotter pins, remove the castle nuts, and then remove the tie rod ends from their seats. Now the factory tie rod ends are a taper fit. So the way that you get those removed is not by hitting straight down on the top of the tie rod ends. All that's going to do, even if you put a nut on there, it is going to mushroom that tie rod end, making it much more difficult to get out of its hole. What you want to do is actually hit the steering knuckle perpendicular to the tie rod end. There's usually a flat spot molded right into your steering knuckle. And what that's going to allow you to do is pop that tie rod end out nice and easy. Now as far as the pivot arm goes, that's a little bit of a different story. Oftentimes, you are going to want to use a Pitman arm puller or a tie rod end puller on your Pitman arm to remove your drag link. Hitting it with a hammer can cause some damage to the steering box, if you're not doing it right. So you will want to have a puller on hand in order to get that removed. You're also going to need a large 21-millimeter socket in order to remove the nut off of your Pitman arm to get that drag link free. Once you have all of your factory system removed, you can take some measurements end to end of your factory tie rod and of your factory drag link and dial in your adjustment just to get things started off for your lengths. Then you'll go ahead and install these components in exactly the factory location using all of the new hardware that they come with. And then you can fine-tune your tow and make sure that you steering wheel is good and centered by making any fine-tune adjustments after that. Again, a very easy install. It goes right in place of your factory system, but is a massive upgrade over stock. And if you have big tires on your Jeep, this is something you might feel driving down the road right away. If you have big tires and your factory drag link was bending, causing a little bit of a wobble, that you're going to get that taken care of right away. And when you do hit the trails, you're going to do it with confidence, knowing that you have a ton of strength. I mentioned before this system is a little bit pricey. You're going to be at about $750 for the pair, the drag link and the tie rod. And there are some systems out there that are more expensive that have a slightly beefier drag link, but because of the adjustability that you get on the tie rod ends here, because of the strength, I think that this is a really nice mix of both price and value. Sure, you can spend another $400 or $500. You can get a different version of this set-up, but I really like the adjustability and the strength that you get with this. And I think it's a very good buy. So if you're looking to upgrade the steering components on your JK because you have large tires, because you wheel hard, because you want the confidence of knowing that you're not going to bend or break your steering linkage when you are in an off-road situation or maybe you've already bent up your factory system and you're looking for a really strong replacement, I think this is going to be an excellent option for you, as long as you have the budget for it. So that's my review of the TeraFlex HD tire rod and drag link kit, fitting all 2007 and up JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    • You can make it work, you would just want to upgrade the clamp on the steering stabilizer to accept the new 1-5/8” tie rod on the Teraflex HD Tie Rod & Flipped Drag Link Kit if the steering stabilizer in question does not already match this.

    • The Teraflex HD Tie Rod & Drag Link Kit will be compatible with any wheels that have a lower backspacing then the stock wheels- meaning they would stick out further and allow more clearance.

      Solid!

      Incredible difference from stock tie rod. Love it. Bent stock rod on trail ride and given the beefiness of this new one I don’t see how it would be possible on this one. Great upgrade I’d recommend highly.

      Solid Suspension A Must have

      Experienced Death Wobble for first time at 147,000 miles and wife wanted it fixed. Teraflex HD suspension fixed it. Changed Track bar, Drag Link, and Tie Rod then added the Falcon adjustable stabilizer. Easy install, I work 6 days a week and only have a little time in mornings before work. Total install time 3-4 hours for a do=it-yourselfer. Wanted a suspension that will last the life of the Jeep. Ride is amazing. feels like a brand new Jeep

      Beefy!

      After upgrading my tire size from stock to 35's I figured the factory tie rod and drag link wouldn't be enough to handle the extra weight. These things are huge comparedto stock. The only downside is one of the grease fittings on the passenger side can't be greased without removing the drag link. I'm not sure if there's a grease fitting with a 90° angle that could be installed to resolve that or not. Otherwise I'm very happy with the product.

      DW FIXED!!!!

      I had a horrible death wobble a on my 14 jku that was happening more frequently.Anything from a bump in the road, driving over bridges, or using my breaks to slow down while going down a mountain. If you even thought of the word wobble it would happen. There are a few other parts I still need to replace but after i install this, I can drive with confidence, peace of mind and no more small heart attacks.

      Great. A

      Had a tie rod, drag link and steering stabilizer that needed to be replaced. The stock ends were completely shot and so was the stabilizer. I had pretty bad handling when going over bumps, it would jerk me side to side. Also, had a terrible death wobble at times. Once replaced, I had an immediate change in my steering. No more jerking and no more death wobble. Thank you Teraflex.

      Once it was determined that the drag link was manufactured too long and the tie rod shaft had to be cut down a 1/4 inch things went together great and is much beefier then the stock drag link.

      What a difference!!!

      I just added a 2.5” TeraFlex lift and slapped on new rims and tires. I weighed my options and looked at all the available units, but figured why not keep it in the family and go with the TeraFlex whole kit. This tie rod and drag link are pricy, but it’s definitely worth it. This kit feels so much more stable than the stock set up and it’s totally rebuildable!

      Review from Teraflex HD Tie Rod Kit (07-18 Wrangler JK)

      A beast of a tie rod

      I honestly don’t need to say much except go get this thing. This thing is a beast compared to the factory rod. I had it knocked out and installed in 30 mins. If you are new and iffy about doing it, TeraFlex has a YouTube video of the install. I also had to get an alignment after the install. I measured it down to the thread and my alignment was off. Just FYI, if you have a rough country dual stabilizer on your Jeep with the factory tie rod, it will not fit on bigger tie rod. I learned that the hard way. I don’t have one on my JKU. Waiting on my falcon stabilizer to show up. I’d give this tie rod 10/10 stars if I could.
