Adjustable Draglinks wil fit vehicles from standard height,
Anything above 60mm lift the steering wheel will start to be noticably off
centre, this arm is how you fix the issue, the higher you lift the vehicle the
further the steering moves of centre.
Some of its features are...
- It is 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.
- Fitted with Greasable tie rod ends, with new split pins
and castle nuts.
- Includes a mount for your steering damper both Pin
to Pin & Eye to Eye.
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.
These 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 put a 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.
That's pretty much it, any questions ask away.
We have XHD and Competition arms in our
store as well!!
