Cognito Tie Rods

Hi I was wondering if I installed the Cognito Heavy Duty Tie Rods would that be more efficient than putting on sleeves? I'm not quite sure and any feedback would be appreciated. I'd like to be able to do a 4x4 launch once in a while and possible pull my truck once.

I just installed sleeves the HD tie rods would hit my stabilizer because of the 6" RCD lift.

Definitely go with the HD rods even if you're launching once in a while. Worth the investment in the long run. Im sure you've seen the toothpick stockers they put on these trucks.

Go with the Cogniton HD Tie Rod kit. I just finished a suspension install an the HD kit is much beefier than stock. It worked perfectly, I should have pics in my garage by this weekend. Highly recommend them!

Go with the Cognito HD tie rods you won't be sorry. I feel the sleeves are like a bandaid to the problem.

i like the tie rod sleeves because when they wear out you just need to buy stock tie rods not the expensive hd tie rods.
