Adjustable EXTRA Heavy Duty Draglink
suit Nissan GU Y61 Patrol
This listing is for one brand new
Extra Heavy Duty ADJ Draglink suit all GU Models; we also have GQ Models in our
We now have 3 listings for Draglinks to suit the GQ Patrol,
The original Heavy Duty aftermarket DL700S, this one, Made from 6.5mm wall tube,
using the biggest GU Greasable tie rod ends available, It is becoming one of the
best value for money arms out there, and the Bomb proof Chrome Molly
If you’re in the league to run 35's as a minimum, then you
should be looking at something like this, or if you stick with a smaller tyre
and tend to hit things a bit harder than you should, then you defiantly need to
look at this!!
ADJ Draglinks are required for any lift at 4" 100mm or
above, it is a matter of personal opinion if they are needed for 3" 75mm lift,
the higher you lift the vehicle the further the steering moves of centre. If you
have a GU with airbags, the only way to get the wheel straight again is with one
of these, if you don’t have airbags and try the sneaky by taking the steering
wheel off and turn, you will lose some of your steering lock.
Some of its features are...
- Supplied with new Split pins, and grease
- 6.5mm wall Mild Steel tube.
- GU Patrol Female Greasable Tie rod ends.
- It is heavy duty. Significantly stronger than standard -
and that's what you need in an arm that is positioned just below the bull bar
and in front of the diff.
- It is adjustable. It may be lengthened or shortened to
straighten the steering wheel. If you have lifted your rig, I am tipping the
steering wheel points to the left. As the arms all point more downward with a
suspension lift they inherently get shorter along a horizontal plain and as
such the steering box compensates = steering wheel points to the left. Nissan
can't help - their arms are all fixed length. This adjustable arm can be wound
out longer and in turn the steering wheel points back to straight ahead.
The Drag link is the arm that goes from the steering box
to the front left wheel. When you turn the steering wheel this arm pushes or
pulls the front left wheel to steer. In standard form they are light duty, they
are prone to damage as they are right out the front of everything and the tie
rod ends form part of the arm - they are not adjustable.
They are easy enough to install at home in the driveway, The
hardest bit is removing the original arm, It takes some persuasion with a hammer
to loosen the draglink from the Pitman arm (Attached to the steering box) Strike
the side of the Pitman arm to loosen.
When removed you can measure the front and back edge of the
tyre, and turn the wheel until they are the same measurement, take this
measurement and set your new ADJ Draglink. Mount the new draglink, tighten the
castle nut, and make sure you use the new split pin in!!!
Generally they shouldn’t take long to change
A few mm adjustment can make a fair amount of difference so
it is important to be as specific as possible, When you have finished if you are
not happy with the Wheel, pull to the side, ect, it is recommended to get a
professional wheel alignment.
