These pairs of stainless steel R&R sleeves are extremely easy to install. The sleeves thread onto the tie rod making it almost impossible to break or bend. Manufactured from high quality stainless steel. Available in Polished Stainless and also Black E-Coated. These are made with a 24mm hex for easy service, so no need for the standard locking nut, it is removed and use the hex on the sleeve to lock against the tie rod end. These tie rod sleeves must be loosened to make toe adjustments when performing an alignment. Lesser quality sleeves made from cheap steel can rust and be very difficult to move.
Will these sleeves will fit your vehicle?
- These sleeves are a total length of: 145mm
- Outside Diameter: 30mm
- Inside diameter: 16mm
- Thread size and pitch M14 * 1.5 Thread.
Suits up to 15mm rod perfectly. (Note: They will not fit over 15.6mm) so check the thickest section of the tie rods you have before ordering as they all vary.
I recommend when running sleeves, to apply a small amount of sikaflex after a wheel alignment, into the small clearance gap to prevent water, moisture, dirt, etc from entering.
I also recommend running the steering rack clamp in conjunction with sleeves if your vehicle is an:
- Izuzu D-Max/Mux
- Holden RC/RG Colorado
- Holden Rodeo
Due to the fact these models are known for snapping steering racks off-road. So best to increase the strength of the rack and the tie rods at the same time.
These sleeves are recommended for off-road use only. However, they have been tested and ran both on and off road. They are extremely strong, and very safe. They are not ADR approved. So Buyers are to install or have installed correctly and run at own risk.
