Fits:- all Defenders / Disco 1 / RRc ( will not fit with a Anti-Roll Bar )
These Track Rod Guards bolt onto your front axle using the existing bolts and mounting points on the axle, with the earlier front axle that does not have the anti roll bar brackets fitted to the axle, 2 mounting plates are provided to attach to the front trailing arm mounting bolts to make the guard more secure.
This guard can also be fitted if you have a QT diff guard, all you do is cut the back off the QT diff guard, drill 2 holes in it and then it will bolt onto our track rod guard, there is a bracket welded to our track rod guard ready for the QT diff guard.
Most heavy duty track rod arms and our own SUMOBARS will fit inside these guards to give the ultimate steering protection for the rear track rod bar, the rear track rod bar is the first thing you bend when you go off roading, you can even bend a heavy duty steering arm without one of these guards fitted, it also has a skid plate on the front part to help you lift over rocks and tree stumps, there is also no need to remove the track rod ends to remove the track rod arm from inside the guard as there should be ample room inside.To remove the track rod bar out of the guard, undo the R/H track rod end and loosen from hub, turn steering full lock to the right and lift out the track rod end, do the same to the L/H side and turn steering full lock to the left and lift track rod end out, now the track rod arm and track rod ends should pull out through the guard.
The guard is galvanized for corrosion resistance.
