The next part to hit the floor is the GM tie rod from the factory rack-and-pinion out to the knuckle. Though designed for and proven over thousands of highway miles, one smack with a rock or stump and the tires point inboard. The BMS replacement tie rods are machined from 13/8-inch 7075 aluminum with Heim joints and a 17-4 machined clevis for improved strength. Plus, by using the tapered conversion pin, it bolts right in place on any '99 and newer Chevy 1500 truck and '01 and newer 2500/3500 HDs and some Hummers.
