Got larger tires? Tired of wearing out factory style tie-rod ends? Sick of bending your center link on rocks? Well if you own a Ύ drill bit, drill, and some wrenches then our Stone Crusher  Heim Steering Systems have the quick and easy solution that can be done at home in your driveway!  Our kits use 1-1/4" DOM tubing that has a .687" I.D., giving a good thick .2815" wall thickness to minimize flex and bending under a load. The spherical rod ends aka heims have a load rating of over 23,000 pounds and are Teflon lined so no need to worry about wearing them out anytime soon.  Jam nuts are used to lock the linkage to the heims to avoid any of the links from vibrating out of adjustment and we include cotter pins for security.  All links use 3/4" grade 8 bolts with all metal lock nuts to secure the heim joint steering linkage to the knuckle.  We include enough Zinc coated spacers to go over or under the knuckle...it’s your choice!  Stone Crusher heim steering systems come in black powder-coated finish to give it a sleek look while also being very durable.

Replace your weak or rock-rashed stock steering with one of our tough new heim joint steering systems. We use 1.25” DOM tubing with an 0.2815” wall thickness. We thread the tube (no weld-in insert) for maximum strength and clearance. We attach the drag link to the tie rod via a welded on "saddle". This maintains factory geometry and allows for maximum articulation. It also eliminates the use of long spacers and greatly reduces applied torque on the passenger side steering knuckle. We include machined misalignment spacers and high quality, Teflon-lined, 3/4” rod ends with GR8 bolts to prevent binding and allow full articulation of the joint. Our system does require drilling out your stock knuckles and pitman arm to 3/4” (If you have James Duff steering knuckles, they are already machined to 3/4”). This can be accomplished with a common hand drill and a 3/4" drill bit. The system can be installed under or over the knuckle. We include a complete hardware kit with all metal unitorque nuts and cotter pins to secure everything in place. Comes black powder coated with detailed instructions.

We keep two basic setups in stock. Setup A: For use with the 48” (knuckle to knuckle), 66-75 Early Bronco drum knuckles, or disc conversions using Duff, Chevy, or the '79 F150/Bronco knuckle. Setup B: Measures 51” (knuckle to knuckle) and works with stock 76-77 Ford disc knuckles. The tie rod length is measurement "A". To get you the correct system, we need two additional measurements from your vehicle. First, be sure that your front tires have 1/4" of toe-in. With the vehicle fully laden, sitting at ride height, and on level ground, pull a string from the driver side steering knuckle to the passenger side steering knuckle and tie it taught. Pull a second string from the underside of the pitman arm, PARALLEL WITH THE TRAC BAR, towards the passenger side steering knuckle. Be sure to keep the string parallel with your trac bar! Make a mark on and note the location on both strings at the point where the upper and lower strings are 1 1/2" apart. Measure from the passenger side steering knuckle back to the mark you just made on the lower string. This is the location of your saddle and measurement "B". Next, measure from the center of the pitman arm along the upper string to the point where you made your mark on your upper string. This is the length of your drag link and measurement "C". (Pre-built units are based upon steering boxes and all other components in the stock location.) Call for information and pricing on custom setups.

(For street-driven vehicles, check your local regulations before ordering. Some states will not pass inspection with heim joints in the steering system.) Please note that these systems are not compatible with a shock mounted to the front of the C-Cap. Shocks must be behind the coil. Steering stabilizer setups will need modification to be reinstalled. Please note that UPS recently started accessing a $13.00 added handling fee to packages over 48" will be added to the calculated total.

Fullsize Bronco Solid Axle Swap Heim Joint Steering System
Our Price: $389.95
Sale Price: $329.00
You save $60.95!

When doing a Solid axle Swap on your Fullsize Bronco, you'll need new steering linkage. Our tough new steering systems use 1.25” DOM with a .2815” wall thickness threaded (no weld in insert) for maximum strength and clearance. We attach the drag link to the tie rod via a saddle to maintain factory geometry and to eliminate the use of long spacers and additional torque on the passenger side knuckle. We use misalignment spacers around the high quality Teflon lined 3/4” rod ends and GR8 bolts to prevent binding and allow full articulation of the joint. Requires drilling out your knuckles and pitman arm to 3/4” (except with our new Dana 44 swap knuckles that are machined 3/4”). Can be installed over or under the knuckle with included hardware. We include all metal lock nuts and cotter pins to drill and secure everything in place. Comes black powder coated with detailed instructions. To get you the correct one we need two measurements on your vehicle; from center to center of your knuckles where the tie rod goes through and from the center of the pitman arm to the center of the PASSENGER side knuckle. These kits are based on a stock location steering box. We want both of these measurements because they will vary depending on lift height, steering box and the front end/knuckle setup you have. Also note that there is a significant amount of adjustment with 2 joints on each linkage. Check your local regulations before ordering as some states will not pass inspection with heim joints in the steering system. Please note that these systems are not compatible with a shock mounted to the front of the C-Cap. Shocks must be behind the coil. Call for pricing on custom setups. Please note that UPS recently started accessing a $13.00 added handling fee to packages over 48" this is included in the calculated total.
