Superlifts Superunner steering system will fit 1980-96 2wd and 4wd F100/150 and Broncos.
Superlift's award-winning steering system is available for all vehicle models equipped with Ford's Twin Traction Beam (TTB) suspension. It consists of a centerlink, an idler arm and mounting bracket, and two tie rod assemblies. The system is compatible with most name brand 4" to 6" lift kits. The vehicle must be lifted no less than 3.5" and no more than 6", plus be equipped with a Superlift brand dropped pitman arm (purchased separately). This Superrunner Steering Conversion kit works with Superlift Suspension lift kits associated with Ford applications.
Fords with TTB suspension are known for their somewhat vague steering feel. On off-camber or less than ideal driving surfaces, continuous corrective steering input is required to keep the vehicle pointed straight. When the vehicle is raised, these inherent tendencies are magnified. To correct this concern, you must: (1) minimize tie rod angles, and (2) improve steering tie rod-to-axle beam "phasing"... the tie rods' arc of movement should better match the axle beams' arc of movement.
These two factors greatly impact drivability. When this geometry is askew, the vehicle experiences excessive toe-in/toe-out variations as the suspension travels, resulting in the Ford TTB version of bump-steer.
Superlift offers two methods to improve steering traits. Our dropped pitman arm reduces some of the additional steering linkage angle created by increased ride height. Our pitman arm, used with our Superunner Steering System, further reduces tie rod angles. The new tie rod assemblies, more proportional in length to the axle beams, improve phasing.
On most lifted Fords, installing our dropped pitman arm alone will result in satisfactory steering characteristics. The dropped arm, used in conjunction with our Superunner Steering System, delivers optimum steering traits.
This kit consists of a center link, two tie rod assemblies, an idler arm, and and idler arm bracket.
All rod ends are OE quality and greasable.
To use this system your truck must:
- be lifted no less than 3.5" and no more than 6"
- be equipped with a dropped pitman arm
The Superlift Superunner steering system will work with most other name brand 4" or 6" suspension lifts, but will need a Superlift F150/Bronco axle pivot bracket.
Will NOT work with Rancho or Skyjacker Suspension Systems.
