The GKTECH high misalignment tie rods having 64 degrees of misalignment with 3 different length shanks (to suit those with longer LCA's or aftermarket knuckles) and with up to 25mm of bump steer correction built in.
Although these may look pretty similar to other tie rod ends on the market, don't be fooled as they are different (in a good way). Almost all tie rod ends on the market that use rose joints are NOT using high misalignment bearings and wear out in no time at all. OEM type tie rod ends provide around 60 degrees of misalignment and it is critical that around this level of misalignment is kept. Another common issue with most aftermarket style tie rod ends is that there is no protection from dust and dirt. We've developed dust boots specifically to suit the PCYML10T rose joints that we use in our kit. It's also pretty common for shanks to bend under high loads, our shanks have a tensile strength of 176ksi (class 12.9)
The 3 different length rods INCLUDED are: standard length, 15mm and 35mm. Bump steer correction is altered through the use of 5mm shims.

NOTE: When used with stock knuckles the tie rod thread may need to be cut down we recommend using our adjustable inner tie rods (14mm) which offer more than enough thread either way as seen in the following link.
How hard are these to install?
Remove your old tie rod ends and install these. It's a very self explanatory install and shouldn't take longer than 30 minutes.
Will this fit my car?
If your car is listed above then this is a straight fit.
Do I need a wheel alignment after installing these?
Unless you get the length spot on perfect, you will need a wheel alignment after installation.
Why do you include 3 different length rods?
As with our knuckles or with use with extended LCA's, the tie rod end position is moved and you'll need longer tie rods. Now with our kit, you can keep your standard tie rods and just use the corresponding rods that we supply in this kit.
