Introducing the Jeep ZJ Steering Box Brace. Add strength, reliability, safety, and comfort back into your Jeeps steering with this simple, yet very functional piece of equipment. The ZJ model Grand Cherokee factory steering system lacks the strength needed to maintain safe and predictable handling and control, once larger tires, and more weight is added.
The factory steering gearbox, located on the driver's side unibody frame rail, is only attached with three bolts, that often come loose, and can eventually break, leading to possible catastrophic steering failure. (Read: loss of ALL steering control)
Adding this bolt-on, easy to install brace, seriously reduces the stress that turning larger tires creates on the steering gearbox. The brace bolts between the factory (or aftermarket) sway-bar brackets, and the frame rails, on BOTH sides. A collar, with two supplied bolts, clamps around the lower shaft portion of the steering box and effectively eliminates the slop that generally plagues the steering in the Jeep ZJ. This reduction in slop and addition in strength will make your drive to the trail more enjoyable and safe, and will drastically help aid in keeping your steering box in its place while on the trail. No modification or welding is needed to install this brace. Fits both the I6 and V8 models. Comes powder coated in textured black.
All hardware is included.
