Chromoly Steel For Added Strength

Anti Flop Feature
Full side to side range of motion ensures bind free steering when pushing the extremes of your Jeeps travel and articulation, while a limited "front to back" range of movement is built into the rod-end and eliminates the possibility of the offset to allow the tie-rod to "flop".
