2nd drag link in two years !!

Anybody else go through drag links this quickly ?

It's not like I had 38s on there wrecking the link. For the first 18 months I had 275 60/15s and the rest of the time stock type 235/75/15s.

The alignment and tire wear is perfect(before and after the poly radius arm bushings), I grease things once a month(once every three in the Winter up here). The old plastic steering pump had been on it's way out for a few years before I swapped in that re-manufactured Saginaw. Could that be it !

I can't remember what brand I used last time, but this time I popped for a Moog, for some guaranteed quality (hopefully).

Is this normal for a TTB 86 Bronco ?

I ran 38's on my 89 bronco and never had to replace a drag link. But I did crack the frame and so on and so forth. Maybe like you said, a cheap part is what got you?

Well you're talking about TTB... define "normal" [img]images/graemlins/chairfall.gif[/img]

Do you have lifetime warranties on your stuff? I love mine, I don't care how often they wear out [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] With that said, I just replaced my steering stuff for the first time in 4 years, and I "abuse" more than I "use", so yes I would say your wear is excessive [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
