Steering linkage replacement

Post by jlager » Tue Jun 06, 2017 1:40 pm

Most every part of my steering linkage is worn out. Does anyone have any suggestions for replacement parts that are not original? Anything I can find in north america that would work for tie rod ends etc? Considering having someone fabricate a new steering linkage where I can use tie rod ends for domestic trucks instead but wondering if there's an easier solution.

Easiest solution is place an order with EI or SAV.
No tinkering necessary, should last a very long time.

Take your rods off and go to the local driveline specialists shop. They can measure your ends and likely find a match or make something close, maybe even nicer. I never replaced any before but wouldn't be surprised if a Land Rover part number matched up since the axles/brakes are British.

ProGi make good replacement rod ends, I have been running them for some years now with good results.

They also make CV boots and diff lock diaphragms.
