New from Beans Diesel - Bolt on Duramax Tie Rod Sleeves!
The tie rods on Chevrolet Duramax trucks have always been an issue. The size of the rod is only .5 inches in diameter and with the geometry of the independent suspension the stock tie rods are very prone to catastrophic failure. Any kind of power put to the front suspension while in 4WD will stress the tie rods and very often cause them to buckle. When this happens you will at a minimum be paying a tow truck to get your truck home with the front end in the air, worst case we have seen entire spindles break off destroying everything from the CV axles out.
An easy way to remedy this is to install aftermarket tie rod sleeves. While this is usually not a big job it requires the removal of the outer tie rod in order to thread the sleeve onto the inner rod. If not done correctly and the tie rod re-installed exactly how it came off can cause the front end to be out of alignment causing premature tire wear steering issues. To do the job properly a trip to the alignment shop is needed adding to the cost of the sleeves you just bought.
To remedy this BEANS DIESEL has come up with an ingenious idea of using a clam shell design that will bolt on without the need of removing the outer tie rod! These sleeves can be installed in literally 5 minutes and prevent thousands of dollars of repairs.
- Super Fast Install
- No Re-alignment Issues
- Made from super strong billet aircraft grade aluminum
- 14 Stainless Steel Bolts for unbreakable strength
- Awesome beefy look of machined billet
- Available in Plain, Blue and Red anodized colors
Note: These are for Chevrolet trucks from 01-10, 2011 and up models came with a larger diameter tie rod so these will not fit those models. There are many slight variations in aftermarket tie rods, our sleeve should fit all of them but if for any reason they seem to not fit your application you will need to BORE a little bit to fit your application. DO NOT bore all the way out, if you do the sleeve will not fit and will just slide around on the tie rod.
Worried that these sleeves are not strong enough? How about we put our money where our mouth is.... These sleeves come with a 2 year warranty and if you break them we will refund your money as well as purchase you a new set of sleeves of your choice!

The Beans Diesel Performance two piece tie rod sleeves make the whole process much faster, easier and a lot less money when you don't have to pay for an alignment!
While others claim they thought of this first, Beans made it first, good job guys. (Posted on 2/16/2015)
