Be sure to check vehicle fitment below

A direct replacement extreme duty Tie Rod and Drag Link assembly to replace your underperforming OE steering. Oversized tie rod and drag link ends, connected by massive DOM tubes, eliminates death wobble and tightens up steering under the most extreme conditions. Weak adjusting sleeves are replaced via tie rod and drag link ends threading directly into the connecting rods, secured by jam nuts and our proprietary ninja lock-washers. This kit also includes our TR203 OE location damper bracket.

This will change the way your vehicle drives forever!

Dodge note regarding dual stabilizers kits: Due to our oversized tie rod ends, modifications may need to be made to dual stabilizer kit, tie rod end brackets to fit.

WHAT IT FITS:

Dodge Ram 2500 (2014-2024) 4WD

Dodge Ram 3500 (2013-2024) 4WD

The Special Sauce:

HOUSING
  • SAE 1045 Solid Steel Forged Housing: This is unequivocally the best carbon alloy steel for this application.
  • CNC Machined Housing: Make our parts and bearings dimensionally perfect, eliminating any die wear issues.
BALL STUDS
  • SAE 4140 hot forged Chromoly Ball Studs: For the strongest possible metallurgy.
  • Induction Heat Treated Ball Studs: Provides a very precise heat treatment to the exact depth and location we want it.
  • Rolled Threads: Are made by pressing the shape of the threads into the ball stud instead of cutting. This strengthens the threads instead of weakening them and allows for easy movement of hardware. This ain't no Ikea furniture!
  • Step Threads: allows for very easy movement of hardware on install and superior holding when torqued (installer choice).
BEARING DESIGN
  • Rugged Metal to Metal Bearing
BOOTS
  • CR Rubber Boots: The most durable material for undercar applications. Resistant to deterioration from road level ozone, oil/gas/engine fluids and extreme heat or cold
  • Accordion Boot: Ideal for high-articulation components, more flexibility means longer life.
HARDWARE
  • Grade 8 - Class 10.9 Hardware:Superior tensile strength.
  • Tension Nut: Very strong hold for most applications.
ADJUSTING RODS
  • E-Coat Finish: Durable e-coat treatment
  • Tie Rod - 2.125" DOM SAE 1020 Tube: Heavy walled steel tubing provides the tightest most robust steering on the market.
  • Drag Link - 1.75" DOM SAE 1020 Tube: Heavy walled steel tubing provides the tightest most robust steering on the market.
LUBRICATION
  • Pre threaded Zerk Housing: If you have ever installed a MOOG Ball Joint without a pre-threaded zerk fitting you will understand what a simple but great feature this is. Another installer fav.
  • Greaseable: Because it should be.
  • Gull Winged Grease Grooves: Allows for improved lubrication disbursement around the ball stud.
SPECIAL FEATURES
  • Flopper Stoppers Built In: Unlike the poly hockey pucks that most brands use, our heavy duty "Flopper Stoppers" are built into the tie rod end and drag link end bearings, giving you an industry leading 27 degrees of stud swing left and right and only 2 degrees of stud swing forward and aft, keeping your tie rod and drag link from rotating and flopping. The competitor hockey puck style systems also call for the removal of the tie rod end boot, which is there to keep the dirt out and the grease in.
  • Ninja Washers (tm): An APEX exclusive is our Ninja Washer which is a unique method of securing the lock nut to the tube, erasing the need for lightly built adjusting tubes with ugly pinch clamps. And who doesn't want a ninja on their front end.
  • Drag Link - Minimum Engagement Mark on Threads: If this mark in the thread of the drag link is showing it means you are beyond the safe engagement of threads into the adjusting sleeve. You may be lifted too high and need to switch to a flip kit or you may need to equal out the adjusting sleeve between the two ends.

Wish I found out about this sooner!

My truck came lifted on 37s and only had the factory steering parts. I knew the time would come that I would need to replace them but not sure what I was looking for. I thought I was stuck with factory replacements every 25k miles or so until I found Apex! The customer support answered all my questions and definitely helped boost my confidence in buying this kit for my 2022 Ram 2500. Old parts gone and new parts in the truck rides like it should and even better than ever and feels solid. Do yourself a favor and get this for your Ram! Thank you Apex for letting take back control of the wheel!

Greatest customer service on earth hands down

I installed this kit close to a year ago. Last week it felt like my truck was on a boat so I jacked it up to see what was going on and this is what I found

Somehow the tie rod end separated from the adjustment bar. Figured that’s weird let’s rethread it on. Yeah threads were no longer existent on that bad boy. I contacted apex asap. Probably 10/15 minutes after submitting my warranty claim online someone contacted me. I sent them the video of me inserting the tie rod and pulling it back out. 10 minutes goes by, he said they’d ship me a whole new kit free. Didn’t ask me how many miles I had, didn’t ask who installed it, didn’t ask how long I’ve had it or what kind of driving I’ve done. Just shipped me a whole kit. I’ll be a customer for life.

After I talked to the rep a little more he believes whoever aligned it didn’t torque the jam nuts to spec and over time it allowed it to separate. I’ll be damn sure to double check moving forward.
