New from HD Machine Worx, Bolt on Duramax Tie Rod Sleeves!
The tie rods on Chevrolet Duramax trucks have always been an issue. The size of the rod is only .5 inches in diameter and with the geometry of the independent suspension the stock tie rods are very prone to catastrophic failure. Any kind of power put to the front suspension while in 4WD will stress the tie rods and very often cause them to buckle. When this happens you will at a minimum be paying a tow truck to get your truck home with the front end in the air, worst case we have seen entire spindles break off destroying everything from the CV axles out.
An easy way to remedy this is to install aftermarket tie rod sleeves. While this is usually not a big job it requires the removal of the outer tie rod in order to thread the sleeve onto the inner rod. If not done correctly and the tie rod re-installed exactly how it came off can cause the front end to be out of alignment causing premature tire wear or wondering. To do the job properly a trip to the alignment shop is needed adding to the cost of the sleeves you just bought.
To remedy this the guys at HD Machine WorX came up with an ingenious idea of using a clam shell design that will bolt on without the need of removing the outer tie rod! These sleeves can be installed in literally 5 minutes and prevent thousands of dollars of repairs.
