DOR Heavy Duty T-style bolt-in steering for 1994-2012 trucks

Postby djgaston » Fri May 06, 2016 11:38 am

We've had this one the site for years, but there are some new pictures and info since the last time I mentioned it on here. Check out the product page for a very detailed look at the best bolt-in steering kit for your 2nd, 3rd, or 4th gen Dodge Ram! http://dodgeoffroad.3dcartstores.com/DO ... _p_22.html

What makes ours better than others? We use stronger tube, stronger joints, stronger bolts, and better geometry. Our steering has gone through several revisions to get it dialed in just right, and all of that was done before any other company ever tried to throw their hat in the ring with a bolt-in setup. Now you have them from several companies, but none of them are as good as ours. You can't be the best if you only copy others - we came up with this design years before anybody else, out of our own experience with these trucks.

Our steering is not only stronger, but it's less expensive than other options, and it lasts a lot longer thanks to the chromoly heims. If you take factory steering off and replace it with steering that still uses TREs, you're going to have a bad time. TREs don't handle angles very well, and that is why they wear out so fast. That is where heims excel. Some people think that heims are not legal or aren't as safe but that's totally incorrect. They are legal in all 50 states, and they are much safer because they are captured in place. If a heim ever does fall apart (I've never seen it happen), it can't go anywhere. The housing is encased so it can only move up and down about 3/4". If a TRE lets go (I've seen it happen many times), the ball comes out of the socket and you have no steering at all. There is nothing holding a TRE together except for a small ring around the cup, which is not much smaller than the ball inside.

People talk about the Mopar steering upgrade like it's this great thing, but we sell a ton of steering kits to guys who are replacing their Mopar linkage. Don't waste your money on more stock parts. Get a real upgrade that you can put on the truck and not mess with again. We make a few versions of this steering to fit all budgets, starting at just $699. Designed and built by guys who drive Ram trucks every day with this steering on those trucks, and who were tired of having sloppy steering. 100% made in Arkansas, and we keep them in stock 98% of the time! When they are out of stock, it just takes a few days to reload.

Here are some more pictures that show the steering linkage setup correctly on a truck sitting at ride height. Notice how the drag link mount on the tie rod is a welded piece, not a hole drilled through the tube. That piece is machined out of solid 1018 steel and is much stronger than drilling a hole through the tube like I have seen done. It also holds the bolt head in place so you don't need a wrench to tighten the nut. :wink: Also notice the dual bends in the drag link, which give the heims a perfect angle even with a 6" lift (drop pitman arm helps too).
