Wink New!!!! High-steer knuckles for your JK!!!!

One of the things we have heard over the years is that we need to introduce some high-steer knuckles and we have listened!!!!!

You will need a track bar mount relocation bracket if you don't have one already ( PN RS62101) and a draglink flip kit (We are launching one very soon, and that PN will be RS62102)

Get your steering up and out of the way!!!

When ever installing new knuckles, this is also a good time to upgrade your ball joints too!!!


Check with your favorite retailer on pricing.

Good luck and this is my next upgrade . I have the flip drag already and tie rods done, saving for the Reid High steer knuckles, but tell you this If I can save a bunch I'll buy them for you .. but if it's like 10 or 15 dollars cheaper .. I'll buy the Reid High steer, they build great shit !!
Me I'm a cheap bastard for me it's all about the Benjamin's . . . Reid Racing doesn't have any competition on this item so it will be GREAT TO SEE what happens ..

I get that this product is new from this manufacturer, but is there something different about this product that existing options (besides the color, and ignoring any potential price difference)?

And I understand why a company would want to include bump stops with this product (listed as included in the promotional image), but the consumer that already has them won't want to pay for them.

What makes these different is that they will work for people that have right hand drive jeeps since they have a drag link arm on both knuckles.

Pretty sure Reid has left and right drive knuckles. They just sell 2 different versions where Rancho appears to have just eliminated the "non draglink" knuckle all together. Means 2 less castings to deal with and 1 "kit" for any JK.

Unless they came out with it in the last year, they do not make one. I needed a rhd drivers side knuckle and they were my first call. I ended up finding a factory one from a dismantler.

Pricing should be very competitive and not just a $10 savings. Also as mentioned in another post these will come with the proper height 3" bump stops too.

As a company that has been in the shock and suspension for over 60 years, we tried to stop anyone else from making systems.

Don't take my comment to mean something it doesn't - competition is a good thing. I was just trying to understand if there was something to these that I was missing. I see now that this is like comparing AEV caster correction brackets to Rancho caster correction brackets.

In regards to this, ours our a one piece welded design so ease of install. Also ours well bend before it cracks. Also with the knuckle, we can't go changing the wheel too much because the taper will need to stay the same to accommodate OE parts.

I'm considering knuckles and high steer in my near future. I like options and being able to make a decision better than being stuck with 1 choice. Reid has always been a go to for knuckles for me, but I'm always willing to consider other options.


Are they readily available and shipping immediately?

Where are they manufactured?

What is the MSRP?

I like options, but anyhow I thought of the correction brackets when I first saw these. AEV is the go to name when control arm drop brackets are mentioned for a JK, but honestly there are a couple (3 or so) manufacturers that I'd take over AEV's brackets. Rancho's are one of them.

Are they readily available and shipping immediately? Yes, it is up to the retailer and their wholesaler to have them in stock. But they are ready to go.

Where are they manufactured? They are manufactured overseas, but NOT China!!! 99% of our products are made here, but to get a relatively small run in a US foundry makes it cost prohibitive. I do know that Reid makes a lot (if not all) of their products here, but I am not sure on their JK knuckles honestly. Remember we are part of an 8 billion dollar company, so don't "half ass" it.

What is the MSRP? WE are hoping to see them to the consumer for $425-450 WITH the proper height bump stop.

Yes sir. Now I saw you are in Canada, so adjust accordingly.

We have had them on the Rubicon trail, trails all over Utah and AZ for almost a year now, no issues.

So do these have the steering arm on both or just the applicable side being left or right hand drive?

Does the knuckle have to be drilled for the Synergy Drag Link?
