Ultimate Steering package from Rock Krawler is a great choice.

Comes with:

Laser cut front track bar bracket made from 3/16" steel.
Front track bar mount reinforcing bracket made from 1/4" thick laser cut steel.
Front double adjustable front track bar made from 1.5" diameter solid alloy steel with a bushing at the frame and a spherical joint at the axle.
Tapered stainless steel drag link flip spacer.
Heavy duty drag link with quick adjuster.

You will need to pick up a good 7/8" Drill bit and a Factory tie rod end.

Rock Krawler, Poison Spyder, Rigid Industries, Currie and more.

They also offer this kit in 7075 Alum. but not the drag link, it only comes in Steel. 1/3 the weight of solid steel.

Great kit, I've got their entire set up. I love it.

I agree with everything above! Both Poly and RK makes great steering kits. I guess it would come down to what all your looking for in the kit and pricing.

The TF setup is good as well, just a different approach. They drop at the frame side rather than raising the axle bracket. Uses a factory RHD drag link flipped over.

The factory LHD drag link lasted 60,000km and then caused violent death wobble. It was replaced under warranty but I chose Polys highsteer for that reason. I can't see using OEM parts as a mod.

Guys, I need some honest feedback on this subject (great thread, BTW)...

I just ordered the Poly High Steer Kit but I discovered after ordering it that I MUST use 3" bumpstops or the track bar will hit the frame rail (totally my fault - they indicate this on their website and I just missed it). Essentially, this is due (I'm paraphrasing what I was told so forgive me if I'm off a bit) to flipping the drag link and using their track bar relocation bracket. Essentially it raises both of these items 3" higher than they were before (to match geometry, etc.).. If the bumpstop isn't at least 3", the track bar will strike the frame rail on the passenger side (when bottomed out)..

My lift kit came with 2" bumpstops so it seems to me that I'm losing 1 full inch of up-travel. Oh, and YES I do flex my Jeep to its MAX. It has been suggested that I may not even be hitting the 2" bumpstops (I may already be limited to the 3" "position" by the shocks or something) but for the purpose of this question, I am (initially) going to assume that I do flex all the way to the 2" bumpstop. I LOVE the way my Jeep performs (particularily on the Rubicon Trail last November) and I do NOT want to give up any flex!

The guys at PP have been great - knowledgable, patient, very nice, helpful, etc. but I would appreciate some other opinions on the subject.

Would it be stupid to run this with only 2" bumpstops? If/when I do bottom out, it would be at a very slow speed/on the trail (right?).




The Jeep:
2009 Rubicon 2 Door
Full Traction 3" Premium Plus Lift Kit (tho I got about 4-4.5" out of it)
35" tires
