One area seriously lacking on the Chevy HD is the steering link. With an outside diameter of only 1/2-inch, one wrong turn can easily bend the tie rod leaving your alignment out of whack for all of eternity. That problem is only intensified when you beef up the truck’s appearance with an off-road tire and wheel package. Rough Country combats this issue with its new HD Tie Rod Sleeve. Taking the outside diameter from 1/2-inch to 1-inch, this steel sleeve strengthens the steering components on the HD with an install time of only an hour. Rough Country’s HD Tie Rod Sleeve simply takes the place of the stock jam nut giving you sturdy assurance that handling issues are not a concern for you anymore.
