I have these installed on the grizzly. They where packaged nicely in bubble wrap that kept the two seperate from each other very nicely.
For the install basic hand tools are all you will need. Though a air hammer for getting the tie rod ends off is the best way to go for that. I had all my fenders off for the install which made it easier, but you wouldn’t have to do this.
Pic of my old bent stock tie rod next the the ASR tie rods. You can see how much better these tie rods look than the stock one. The one stock tie rod that bent was way worse than before I did an alignment. I thought after I did allignment it would last little longer yet. lol
Here few pics of putting them on. You will need an allen wrench and a wratchet wrench works best for the tight areas by the steering stem. Here where I wish the had some instructions a little. I didn’t know it was a allen head under the rubber boot right away. I had to slide the boot to see what it look like after I had the tie rods in place. I know it’s not big deal but for me would been nice to know so I had the right allen right away before they were in place. Also be carefull with the rubber boots. I did damage one just a little when I was moving them to get the allen on. Not real bad but still bit of a rip in it. It is $10 buck more for the rubber boots if you want them. Is it worth the extra few bucks idk but I thought I try it out as butch and the modfather booth have the pro-x tie rods that the only difference is the rubber boot between them.
The install went pretty good. They are really easy to adjust and I like the heim joints way better than the norma tie rod joints.
I have had these on for quite awhile now. I didn’t think they would really improve the handling and responce of the grizz that much, but man does it make a difference. The steering is much tighter, quicker responce, less play in the steering system, and just much more enjoyable to me. They are holding up great too. I know they have taken some serious abuse with no problems. If you need to replace your tie rods I would HIGHLY recomend these tie rods to everyone I know.
