After installing sway bars, my next project was to install the SD tie rod sleeves. I ordered them direct from superdiesel. Shipping was 2 days, very fast imo. Installation is straight forward. Sleeves themselves are a quality product. It's important during install to mark how far the ball joint screws in so you don't need an alignment after you're done. My ball joint came loose very easily from the spindle. Because of my lift, I didn't have room to put the jam nut back on. Total install time was less than an hour.

Overall, very easy to install and I now have more peace of mind!

I would recommend it. I guess you could install the sleeves with the wheels on but it went very fast with them off.

What kind of lift do you have and how tall? Sleeves look good!

You don't need to take the front tires off it will give you more room though.

Work on a lift with your truck in the air and then you don't have to worry about it. I think I might have to get a set of those.

I agree; use a lift and installation is a piece of cake.
