I purchased this drag link to replace the heavy duty OEM drag link which has some built in vertical movement. This link is Beefy! I couldn't move the spherical joints by hand as they are very tight! Install was a easy. Keep in mind you loose the ease of steering wheel adjustment without the left/right thread OEM style adjuster.
But this simplifies the assembly as a whole. Lastly the tapered studs are perfect fits for the heim joints and are one piece. This was installed on a 08 quadcab w custom King/Carli 3.0 2" low ride set up.
