Description
The factory draglink on the 2005-18 trucks is a known weak link in the steering system. The cause for this weakness lies within the design of the adjuster on the stock unit. This allows the rod to flex when put under a load caused by road variations or steering input. Increased tires and lift size adds even more stress to this part. Upgrading to our single piece unit will eliminate ALL flex and tighten up the feel of your steering wheel. This is an upgrade that you can notice a night and day difference in the second you open the box and lay the two side by side. We use a single piece rod and machine the appropriate threads to prevent any possible flex. We have two version of this bar. A "Direct Replacement" that comes with a Moog "Problem Solver" series of tie rod end that will fit into your stock pitman arm with no modifications. This is recommended for most street driven trucks and guys that are not wanting to build custom steering setups. We also offer a second "Offroad" version that comes with a heavy duty Ballistic joint. With this you will need to drill out your pitman arm to accept the supplied bolt. Although this version is stronger, it modifies your steering geometry. Also due to the design of this joint, it will need more frequent service and its larger diameter can come into contact with the track bar bracket. This bar does not have the tapered hole for a OEM style of steering stabilizer, it is recommend to run a dual steering stabilizer kit instead.  All needed hardware is included. Rod is powdercoated black wrinkle for a long lasting finish.

As an option for a complete R&R, we have a heavy duty Moog lower/passenger side tie rod end available for purchase.  If you would like to add this to your order, simply select it as an option!

I ordered the offroad version and it felt very solid and heavy duty. My steering feels a lot tighter and the truck drives and rides 100 times better. Would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

I swapped out my OE draglink for the factory replacement style, its very beefy and is stiff, should last a lifetime- another excellent product, I'm slowly swapping out all my components for PMF parts- I use my truck on a farm/ranch doing a lot of work/towing in places a stock truck wouldn't make it out alive-

I installed my single piece drag link (direct replacement version) last night on my 6" lifted '12 F250 and what a difference it made. Its a incredibly heavy duty piece that is a huge upgrade over a stock drag link. I loved seeing that the Moog ball joints had zerk grease fittings too, I much prefer to grease than to buy a 'sealed' ball joint. It now steers like a new truck again, the install was as straight forward and simple as they come and it only took me an hour in my driveway. Cant say enough about this part. I also ordered the Moog (steering knuckle side) for good measure since I already had everything apart and was glad I did - I'm just as impressed with the quality of it. Install both pieces together and you CANT GO WRONG, just order it! NOTE: To break loose the old ball joints from the steering knuckle and the Pittman arm I had a second person get in the truck with it running and move the steering wheel back and forth while I tapped on the ball joints out with a 3lb sledge. Only took a couple minutes and they popped right out!
