Chevy 2500 HD SuperSteer Idler Arm Support

If you've got a '99-to-'06 Chevy or GMC 2500 or 3500 truck, it's likely that you've got a few miles on it by now, and even more likely that you've blown through some steering components. Regardless of whether the truck is stock or modified, many owners of this era truck have found that the tie rods are easily bent or broken, and the stock idler arm assemblies have a rather short life span.

Luckily the aftermarket has come to the rescue of these Chevy and GMC owners and there are solutions.

We followed the installation of a SuperSteer idler arm support assembly and Chevy tie rods onto a '01 Chevy 2500HD truck with almost 200,000 miles on it. It had lived the majority of its life with a lift kit on it, and the owner had already replaced the factory tie rods once. When we got the truck up in the air and took a look at the stock idler arm assembly, it was absolutely annihilated and a real danger to the truck.

With the new Blitzkrieg tie rods and SuperSteer idler arm assembly this truck's steering was upgraded to better-than-factory-new condition.
