Specifications:

  • Brand New Steering & Suspension Kit
  • Comes as an 8 Piece Kit
    • Fits LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side)
  • Direct replacements
  • Built to strict quality control standards

Our steering and suspension components come pre-greased, sealed for long life, and do not require the extra maintenance typically required by greasable versions.

Please Note: Whenever replacing steering components, it is highly recommended to have a professional alignment performed on the vehicle afterwards.  Failure to do so may result in issues with steering and premature tire wear.

Direct Fit

All parts are direct fit, application-specific parts with no modifications required

Rigorously Tested

Rigorously tested and made from higher quality materials than the competition. Our parts are built to have a longer life in any environment or road conditions.

State of the Art Manufacturing

Our parts are manufactured by some of the same factories that the OEMs use.

Prepackaged for Your Convenience

Our kits have been carefully put together to include all of the parts you need to get the job done, saving you both time and money. These kits also help take the guesswork out of finding the correct part for your vehicle’s steering or suspension system, allowing you to get started on your repair project faster.
