- GM IFS TIE ROD STEERING SYSTEMS -

Measuring for your steering system will insure you the absolute best fitting product possible. These short easy steps will insure you get the exact sytem and eliminate factory variances up to 3/4" off with the proper angles which is at the heart of solving all your problems

Pay close attention regarding any potential clearance issues in respect to surrounding components such as sway bars and end links. Also make note if your tie rods mount on the bottom of the knuckle and/or if the angle is too great in order to get optimum joint angle  and achieve maximum articulation at the knuckle, then you may wish to take advantage of our Close Quarters™ Bend option. If you can correct the geometry of placing the tie rod on top of the knuckle, that is also an option.

MEASURE EACH SIDE AS SHOWN ABOVE AND ENTER INTO FORM BELOW

With the wheels centered straight ahead, measure the tie rod from the mounting face of the center link where the stock tie rod screws into, to the center of the knuckle at the wheel where the lower tie rod end bolts into. If the lower tie rod end enters thee knuckle from the bottom up, then measure to the bottom of that hole. If the tie rod end enters from the top down at the knuckle, measure at the top. Do NOT measure the grease fittings.

Then measure the thickness of the
knuckle height, to get you the correct length bolts. Find the largest diameter of the tapered hole where the tie rod fastens. Insure that the front end alignment is correct, so that accurate measurements will be achieved.

If you are reasonably sure your current linkage and front end is lined up correctly, then measure guide as ILLUSTRATED ABOVE. If your linkage is bent or non-existent, then LOOK HERE. If your vehicle is on jack stands or the front end is out, then LOOK HERE.

We find it best to design our steering with as much of the threads engaged for both strength purposes, as well as allowing for maximum adjustment in case the tie rod gets bent in an off road situation, where the ends can be adjusted outwards to get back on the trail again. So, make the necessary compensations for potential errors (too long, too short) when providing your exact measurements upon ordering.

TYPICALLY YOU'LL HAVE 1-1/8" OUTWARD ADJUSTMENT & 1/8" INWARD ADJUSTMENT please consider this and compensate your measurements you provide us accordingly
