cognito tie rod boot rub?

So I have the hd tie rods installed and unfortunately they do barely rub when my tires are turned to their max, so I guess I have to get the longer end links. I didnt see any on norcals website but on the cognito website they have some, and you choose what lift you have length wise. will the cognito end links work for me even though I have a pro comp lift, and has anyone ever had to put these on. this is the part number I think I need SBELKHD-1004 / 4-6" lift

Maybe you could use the RCD endlinks?
Talk to NorCal Truck.

Are the effects of the rub felt in the wheel or just noticed via a visual inspection?
Curious because I just had a set of Cognito HD tie-rods installed as well, and my wheel won't turn nearly as far (maybe 1.5-1.75 turns) to the right as it does to the left (2.5 turns, maybe more).

I cant tell any difference when steering, but if I cut the wheels one way or the other real sharp and get out and look they are barely rubbing the boot, so I wasnt sure If it would eventually rub a hole in it or not.

Gotcha. Looks like longer end links are your answer then?

I had the same problem when I installed these on my truck, the only difference was mine were the Fabtech HD Tie Rods, but the Cognito's look almost identical to the Fabtechs. My truck has an RCD lift kit and I had to remove the end links and replace them with something else.(See Pic) After calling Fabtech, they told me that their HD tie rods were designed to fit with their lift kits. It had something to do with the tie rod mount on the spindle. Some kits work with them and others get the same rubbing as what you are experiencing. I just used a shorter end link and everything works just fine.

Aren't your tie-rods suppose to be mounted on TOP of the spindle???

From the Factory the tie rods are normally mounted on the bottom. It depends on the lift kit, as you want to keep the tie rod as level as possible. In the case of dmax9 if he mounted his tie rod on the top it looks like it would have an odd angle(Upward) plus the fact it would probably hit the sway bar. It's hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like he doesn't have enough room above the sway bar to use a longer endlink.
