Carrick Customs OBS D60 Heavy Duty Steering Kit
4-6 Week build time on this product
This is the second version of their OBS Ford Heavy Duty Steering Linkage kit for trucks equipped with a Dana 60 front axle. This steering kit is stronger, larger, longer lasting and cheaper to maintain than the stock Ford steering. They use Synergy Mfg Heavy Duty Metal on Metal Tie Rod Ends on the tie rod and the tie rod end of the drag link and we use a GM Style 1 Ton High Angle Tie Rod end at the drag link to pitman arm end. This new version steering kit has a redesigned Y-Link adapter and uses double adjuster rod end tube adapters that make it far stronger than the previous version and much easier to adjust. They also utilize low misalignment dust boots on the tie rod ends that eliminate the tie rod roll that causes a "dead spot" in the steering wheel. Carrick Customs steering kits are all TIG welded and use 1.5" x .188" DOM tubing. While the initial cost is more than new OEM steering linkage, their steering kit is much cheaper to maintain. Each tie rod end only cost $35-$40 to replace when they wear out.
This steering kit completely bolt on. Just remove your old steering, install your Heavy Duty Steering Kit, and have an alignment done.
