The GKTECH high misalignment tie rods have 64 degrees of misalignment and also up to 15mm of bump steer correction built in.
Although these may look pretty similar to other tie rod ends on the market, don't be fooled as they are different (in a good way).
Almost all tie rod ends on the market that use rose joints are NOT using high misalignment bearings and wear out in no time at all. OEM type tie rod ends provide around 60 degrees of misalignment and it is critical that around this level of misalignment is kept.
Another common issue with most aftermarket style tie rod ends is that there is no protection from dust and dirt. We've developed dust boots specifically to suit the PCYML10T rose joints that we use in our kit. It's also pretty common for shanks to bend under high loads, our shanks have a tensile strength of 176ksi (class 12.9)
Bump steer correction is altered through the use of 5mm shims.
- Corrects bump steer up to 15mm
- Uses high quality PTFE lined 1 5/8" high misalignment rose joints
- Dust boots included
- Can be used within OEM wheels
FAQsWill these fit my car?
We can only confirm fitment for the vehicles listed above under "confirmed fitment".
Why do these not fit the ZC6 BRZ?
The alloy knuckles used on the ZD8 are a little taller than the other variants. As such, the ZD8 requires a specific tie rod end. The ZC6 tie rod ends can be seen/purchased here: https://us.gktech.com/products/zn6-86-brz-high-misalignment-tie-rod-ends
