I went wheeling for the first time this weekend after my X over steering installed. The entire trip was great untill the last obsitical. I slid off of the rock that I was on and landed HARD on a rock with my tie rod. The Rockstomper.com tie rod was sooo strong that it caused my 4 studs that hold on the all pro double arm to crack. Has this happened to anyone else? I guess I have to add a nuckle to my box o parts when I go wheelin'. <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep2.gif" border="0">

You just have to wonder if the FJ-80 ends took any internal damage from such a hit. You may want to consider Hy-Steer and get that rod up higher.

The FJ-80 stud may be turnning in the sockett, this could be a sign of a problem with the FJ-80 end. It may need replacment. It would be a good idea to take it off the truck, pull the boot and check for cracks or play in the housing.

Well for one nice way to get some respect newbie. Tell us your breaking stuff that don't brake. I run rockrods with 5/8 heim. Don't think that bolt will give.
Mt.goat it has to with laying your truck sideways. It leaks the grease outa the side closed to the ground and then the ball wears in like hours and will freespinn like you say.

I had two studs, get sripped out of their holes, one stud sheer off, and I guess the 3rd backed off by itself and the threads were still good, but the stud was gone(maybe that is why it broke). Anyway, I had to pull studs out from the other side, and keep tighting every 20 feet or so since the holes in the knuckle where stripped. Got a pic of it somehwere.......ah, found it

I had all four of mine shear off. It appeared that one had broken before the whole thing came off. My whole passenger side steering arm came off. We had to use a crow bar to steer it onto a trailer.
