hmm... Ive seen people weld a sleeve over, but never just put one over it and let it fly... seems as though for it to work to it's highest potential it would need to be attached. I could be wrong though.
yea some people weld it and some people stack washers on them to get them to fit really tight. Yes this works great. My buddy kept bending tie rods on his 07 Brute and after we did this to his bike about 5 months ago, nothing has happened yet. Yes my gingles a little on the trail I may put a little jb weld on the ends to hold it tomorrow
I did the same thing to mine ,but, I ground the pipe down a little at a time so I could tighten the jam nuts down onto the pipe and the end still point in the right direction. The tension against the pipe give them more strength,
Knock on wood I've never had a problem on my Prairie and have been running 29.5's for over two years. I take it the problem is the connecting rod between the two tie rod ends are bending or breaking off in the tie rod end itself?
adding a sleave over it - does it not hit the 4wd actuator when turned all the way? If I'm not mistaken it does or pretty close to it. Seems like someone did this around us but took it back off cause it was rubbing it.
Correct me if I'm wrong because I may be thinking about something else.
