Rough Country Offers Support for HD Tie Rod

Chevy Tie Rod Sleeve

Dyersburg, TN (Jun 16, 2009) – One area seriously lacking on the Chevy HD is the steering link. With an outside diameter of only .5”, one wrong turn can easily bend the tie rod leaving your alignment out of whack for all of eternity. That problem is only intensified when you beef up the truck’s appearance with an off-road tire and wheel package. Rough Country combats this issue with its new HD Tie Rod Sleeve. Taking the outside diameter from .5” to 1”, this steel sleeve strengthens the steering components on the HD with an install time of only an hour. Rough Country’s HD Tie Rod Sleeve simply takes the place of the stock jam nut giving you sturdy assurance that handling issues are not a concern for you anymore.

For more information on the new HD Tie Rod Sleeve, please contact Rough Country Suspension Products at http://www.roughcountry.com or call 800-222-7023.

SUPER STEER IDLER SUPPORT ASSEMBLY ELIMINATES STEERING SLOP IN GM 1500-2500 SERIES IFS TRUCKS

Owners of ’93-’98 GM 1500-2500 IFS trucks can now enjoy responsive steering with SuperSteer’s new SS170 idler support assembly. Designed as a direct replacement for the factory part, the SS170 features a robust cast-aluminum, powder-coated housing and tapered roller bearings instead of sleeve bushings.
