Ground clearance is an important factor for successful off-road driving. The lowest points of the vehicle will inevitably make contact with the ground at some stage while driving in ruts or negotiating rocks and tree stumps. The steering rods on live axle Defenders are particularly vulnerable and can easily get bent, seriously affecting front wheel alignment and steering ability. Even slightly bent steering rods can cause excessive tire wear and poor handling. For Defender 90 or Defender 100 vehicles that are fitted with very large tires the forces acting on the steering gear are far greater, especially when off-road. Hard impacts on the wheels can also bend or kink the steering rods causing serious steering problems.
Terrafirma steering rods are made from solid 30mm diameter steel and are supplied with precisely machined left and right hand threads, locking nuts, and quality, greaseable track rod ends.
