JKS Manufacturing JKSTR300 HD Tie Rod for 99-04 Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ

Quadratec Part #: 56116.1001
JKS Manufacturing Part #: JKSTR300
JKS introduced the HD Tie Rod as a heavy duty replacement for the inferior OE part. Constructed of incredibly strong DOM seamless tubing, the JKS HD Tie Rod is 1.25" in diameter with a 0.375" wall thickness. Each end is correctly threaded to accept the OE tie rod ends for a perfect fit and easy adjustability.

Unlike the OE part, our HD Tie Rod is strong enough to withstand minor impacts on the trail. In addition, the rigid construction provides greater sensitivity to the driver for improved feel and control through the steering wheel. Supplied with right-hand and left-hand jam nuts and powdercoated black.
Product Overview
The factory tie rod used on most late-model Jeeps® is prone to bending due to its vulnerable position and light duty construction. Located directly forward of the front axle, it often makes contact with obstacles before anything else on the vehicle. When this occurs, the weak OE tie rod typically yields to the opposing obstacle before the driver even realizes contact was made. In fact, the combination of large tires and rocky terrain can actually flex the pliable OE part beyond its working limits without contact ever occurring.
