Rusty's Steering System is one of the most popular kits we've ever sold! We build the system right here in our shop so you can be sure you're buying quality components. We've recently noticed cheap knock-offs entering the market that have been sourced overseas. These are NOT the same, so buyer beware! Trust only Rusty's for Made in the USA quality! *** For vehicles with 6" or more of suspension lift, we STRONGLY recommend the RS-SC300-UV Over the Knuckle Steering Conversion*** The RS-SC250-UV may also be close to aftermarket differential covers that are super thick or have a lot of casting designs, The Rusty's RS-SC350-UV may be better suited for that application.

Whether you're an off-roader that is tired of bending steering linkage parts or you own a street Jeep and are tired of poor handling, Rusty's Steering Conversion is the solution! Rusty's Steering Conversion is a complete steering system that replaces the factory "Y-design" with a more traditional wheel-to-wheel tie-rod and a drag link. This system is completely bolt-on; no drilling or reaming is required. It is as simple as removing the factory system and bolting the new Rusty's system in its place!

Rusty's tie-rod and drag link are constructed of 1-1/8" x .250-wall DOM tubing for incredible strength and durability. The steering sytem components are e-coated and then powder coated for a clean show-quality look that has exceptional durability. Rusty's steering system also comes with conventional tie-rod ends and can be purchased at any auto parts store should replacements be needed. Whether your running trails in Moab or Johnson Valley or the Smokey Mountains, any traditional auto parts store will carry replacement tie rod ends. This means no special-order parts that can potentially leave you stranded!

Rusty's is never satisfied with the parts we build; we are always trying to make things better and stronger. The machined parts of this kit have recently changed to offer more flexible mounting options for special applications and for more clearance between the tie rod and the track bar/stabilizer mounts on the axle.

In addition to the direct replacement kit, Rusty's can also make this an over-the-knuckle version. While this does raise the tie rod for better trail clearance, an over-the-knuckle version does require fabrication work and welding. This includes shims for the knuckles, a weld-on relocation bracket for the track bar, and weld on sway bar link brackets. Rusty’s can also custom-build our Steering Conversion for other applications; call us for details.
