The GKTECH high misalignment tie rods have 64 degrees of misalignment and also up to 25mm of bump steer correction built in. Although these may look pretty similar to other tie rod ends on the market, don't be fooled as they are different (in a good way). Almost all tie rod ends on the market that use rose joints are NOT using high misalignment bearings and wear out in no time at all. OEM type tie rod ends provide around 60 degrees of misalignment and it is critical that around this level of misalignment is kept.
Another common issue with most aftermarket style tie rod ends is that there is no protection from dust and dirt. We've developed dust boots specifically to suit the PCYML10T rose joints that we use in our kit. It's also pretty common for shanks to bend under high loads, our shanks have a tensile strength of 176ksi (class 12.9) Bump steer correction is altered through the use of 5mm shims.
- Corrects bump steer up to 25mm
- Uses high quality PTFE lined 1 5/8" high misalignment rose joints
- Dust boots included

Good quality product, quick and simple install.
Install was a bit confusing, had to go to the GKTech YT channel. (And guys...seriously...torqueing that first nut by holding the vertical bar in your hand? come on. LOL. Or were you being sarcastic? I had to use a clamp. This is one aspect of the design you failed at because there should be a notch for a wrench in order to PROPERLY torque it to the front hub or whatever it's called. I don't have a lot of confidence in the torque using a vice grip. I think it worked but that's bad engineering. I'm taking off a star.
Brilliant product. No problems and fantastic quality.
Would not recommend this product, after about 6 months on the car the driver side tie rod end / heim joint has developed a small amount of vertical play.
Zero issues, 30 minute install and a lot of adjustment.
