Superlift Stuperprunner steerage installed
$400 more thrown at TTB, but I love it. The install took about 3 hrs. start to finish with realigning the toe. The kit was missing two zerk fittings and one of the tie rod ends had buggered threads. I had to recut/fix the threads by advancing and backing off the castle nut about a hundred times! I had Superlift TTB pivot point drop brackets, so the holes for the idler arm mount were drilled already.
The kit works with my 6" spring lift and "knuckle under". The steerage is almost parallel to the axels and the stress is spread over another joint and idler arm. The steering is tighter. First thing I noticed, with one tire up on a jack, is that there is no play/loosness when I cranked on the tire at 3 and 9 o'clock. I had noticed as Shilo pointed-out, the twist in the stock steering at the inner joints. That is a thing of the past now. I had replaced inners 3 or 4 times over two broncs and a new tie rod recently after one rocky trip!
It was an easy install, but you need to be able to reset the toe. I don't think you get that much bang for your buck. I am pushing the limits of TTB with 37X12.5 Goodyear MTR's and ARB lockers. I first bent the stock drag link and on a later trip loosened the inner joint on a new tie rod. I would not have bought Stuperrunner had I not had the problems. Dangling Dave experienced some steering probs with 33's. If I was not bending and breaking steerage, I would not pay for this upgrade. I perhaps, should have saved the cash for a SAS. I also wanted a quick fix so I can get to the trails I want to do this summer/fall. I hope this solves my steering problems and thus puts off the SAS indefinitely, unless I break other stuff on the D44 TTB.
