Tie Rod

Unlike the tie rods of yesterday, this new setup doesn’t use castle nuts. In its stock form, it calls for M14x1.50 Nylock nuts. They come with the full kit from KLM performance along with the pitman arm with the correct taper but we didn’t need the pitman arm and thought we’d find the nuts locally. Unfortunately finding these nuts is easier said than done. After searching five different local hardware stores we gave up and dove into Off Road Evolution’s random bolt box to find what we needed. If you are planning on putting this steering linkage on at home, order at least the M14x1.50 nuts so it all goes smoothly.
