YETI XD TIE ROD ASSEMBLY:
Easy bolt-on installation.

• 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.

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 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 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.
