The relay rod or drag link is the connection from the steering box (or the pitman arm at the base of the steering box) to the steering knuckle or in some cases it connects the tie rod assembly. (When a wheel alignment is done on a vehicle this is one of the things that is adjusted.) They are essentially the central connection for steering boxes and due to this must be strong and durable. A worn drag link can cause a variety of steering related issues including wandering, erratic steering and excessive tyre wear. These upgraded relay rods are stronger and thicker than the factory fitted product and also suit lifted vehicles.
Classified as the 'startup' version of rod, it is much stronger than the factory standard with an outside diameter of 30mm and a wall thickness of 5.7 mm. The drag link is finished in a durable black coating for corrosion and rust resistance, and is suitable as an upgraded replacement for a standard or lifted LandCruiser.
