Built front end

Does anyone have an idea if the tierod sleeves will hold up to boosted launches?Do I need new bigger tierods instead?I need some help since I already blew out the front end,oops.I did get GM to fix it though,but they were not happy.Any specific brands would help.Thanks.

Sleeves work fine. Get them through PPE, Merchant Auto, McRat racing, Superdiesel.com, among others


IIRC, Cognito makes a larger tie rod.

x2 on braces ...


And also check out the Cognito HD tie rods.



I just installed these parts on my truck, not for boost launching but for just off road use.

I priced the cognitos @$230.Do you think they can handle a boosted 4 launch with 305/55/20 and a leveled front end??I just want to be able to jump a cocky sports car off the line once in a while,no race plans.Would that upgrade itself be all I should need?Only running a six gun and intake.Max boost I have seen is 38lbs.

There is a pic of them side by side, OEM vs. Cognito HD in my post of what I did to my truck. Take a look.

Sleeves and braces will work until about 600rwhp then you will have to step up to a something like a Super Diesel centerlink :Thumbup:
