U-Turn™ Steering Upgrade kit for Jeep® Wrangler™ TJ/LJ/XJ/ZJ.


The U-Turn™ steering upgrade kit replaces the stock tie rod and drag link, providing additional strength and improved responsiveness.  Its crossover design prevents steering toe variance caused by changes to suspension height.  U-Turn™ minimizes bump steer, improves steering feel and eliminates the steering dead spot commonly associated with a lifted Jeep®.

The upgrade kit includes steering knuckle mounting brackets and larger heavy duty ball and socket tie rod ends that provide a longer service life.  The drag link mount allows for a full turning radius, lock to lock, matching the steering box.  The drag link design provides clearance for the track bar/sway bar brackets, no trimming required.

This is a 100% bolt-on kit that can be easily removed to return the vehicle back to stock for resale.

Need to reinstall your U-Turn™?


If for any reason you need to reinstall your U-Turn™, such as changing axles or moving it to another vehicle, then the old aluminum crush collars should not be reused.  It is also good practice to replace the 1/2" cap screws, top lock nuts, and cotter pins.  The U-Turn™ re-installation kit provides everything necessary to do so on a stock TJ, LJ, XJ, or ZJ axle.

Upgrade your older (silver) model U-Turn™


The latest version of U-Turn™ is now manufactured with a solid, instead of hollow, drag link that utilizes larger heavy duty tie rod ends.

The U-Turn™ drag link upgrade kit updates your older U-Turn™ to match the latest version.  Installing this kit is a great option instead of just replacing worn drag link tie rod ends.  The heavy duty Moog Problem Solver tie rod ends included in this kit deliver a longer service life than the ends previously used.
