The GKTECH high tensile 4130 zinc coated offset tie rod extenders screw on to the end of either standard or aftermarket tie rods and allow the tie rods to travel further into the steering rack which creates more steering lock with the added bonus of moving the tie rod position forward 25mm's which helps reduce steering bind. Great for drift or getting out of parking spots. The offset rack spacers are a great alternative to moving the steering rack forward and offer 19mm's extra steering lock without compromising on the amount of thread left in the steering rack.

NOTE: That on some steering racks you will need to notch your steering rack
Are these sold individually or as a pair, your price is so much cheaper than the others selling these!?
These are sold as a pair. Ie. the price listed is for a pair. These are a pretty straight forward item to machine up, it's not rocket science.
How does this offet steering rack spacer work?
The offset steering rack spacers screw into your steering rack and move the tie rod end position forward 25mm's. It helps reduce steering bind (aka tie rod goes over center). It allows the steering rack to travel an extra 19mm's. An extra 19mm's of additional steering rack travel = more lock.
I've installed the rack spacer and I've got a heap of toe in, what happened?
After you have centred your rack (this is CRUCIAL) you may need need to trim your tie rod ends down to counteract the length that you've just put into the length of the rack. Whether you need to trim the tie rods down depends on your setup (Ie. if you've got longer LCA's or aftermarket knuckles you may not need to). Do NOT trim too much off or else you'll need to get a new tie rod and only trim down once you've centred the rack. Note that the LH side has a larger spacer so it will need the most attention.
What's the difference between this offset steering rack spacer and the non offset steering rack spacer that you sell?
The offset steering rack spacer moves the tie rod end mount forward 25mm's where as the standard non offset steering rack spacer is a direct extension and doesn't relocate the mounting points. The offset steering rack spacer is only needed with aftermarket or modified knuckles where as the non offset steering rack spacer can be used with the standard knuckles.
