    would it be a good choice to replace OEM ones with those ones when lifting truck 2.5 -3" with coilovers or is it overkill ?

    it will help for sure. allowing the tie rod to travel more and let the suspension move . I had a set of these for my BDS kit and now i have another set for my new suspension setup and let me tell you they are awesome and David is awesome to work with, you will not be disappointed

    We normally take the type of suspension being used into consideration and not just the amount of lift. if you're using a high quality coilover, (Fox,King,Icon,ADS) and or using a UCA you will notice the steering being hung up by the lack of travel. The outer tie rod is the smallest joint and really feels the pull quick. Our Coachbuilder steering kit provides just over 27 degrees of travel compared to 19 degrees from the factory rod ends.

    you will run the stock replacement version... you will notice a nice gain in steering feel and move travel as you will not get hung up on the tie rod end

    Hey Papasmurf, did these tie rod ends help get you more clearence at full lock on your coil overs of the BDS lift kit?

    It's an easy swap but make sure to perform an alignment to correct the toe.

    They do the exact opposite. These will rub on your coilovers and chip away at the paint. Mine have been doing that since day one but I don't really care for it. There's some surface rust in the spots where the paint chipped.

    I wanted my tierods a little bit longer than the BDS set. I sent David my alignment sheet and he was able to give me what I wanted. Waiting to install at the same time as my coilovers.

    Thanks Spvrtan, Thats the most disappointing to me and the BDS lift. Its like they did not do a lot of R&D on this. My install shop added the spacers to the steering stops that came with the kit AND had to build up more to preventing it from hitting. This just makes the turning radius even worse!

    Our adapter tubes are a touch larger diameter than the BDS outers and can make contact just as you're describing. Usually if you back off on the castor it increases clearance between the two parts.
