Completely disappointed in Teraflex's customer service and willingness to resolve my problem. I purchased the parts through Extreme Terrain online. Purchased the HD Tie Rod and Drag Link Kit in July. Parts came fairly quickly but the end of the box was open and parts missing. Seems Tereflex does not package its items well enough to avoid shifting in the box and blowing out the ends. You can see numerous posts of this type on the Extreme Terrain website. Called Extreme Terrain and they worked quickly for me to return the parts and send me new ones. Good customer service by Extreme Terrain. Receive the new box, and still missing parts, the 4 nuts that go to the ends of the tie rod and drag link. Had to use the ones I already had which was not optimal. Could have purchased new ones but the photo on this site and the description show the parts should have come with the order. Installed the parts and took it for front end alignment. Mechanic was able to align the wheels but was not able to align the steering wheel to center because the Drag Link was too long. Both ends were all the way in the sleeve and touching making it unable to adjust any further. Steering wheel not sitting at center now. Called Tereflex customer service because it is their product and thought I may have done something wrong while still at the shop getting it aligned. Went through the standard questions like type of Jeep, parts, etc. The Tereflex parts were made for a non-lifted Jeep with an OEM Pitman Arm which fits the description of my Jeep. I tried to explain that if the parts were made for my setup then they should fit and I should be able to get the steering wheel aligned. Now comes the BS. Tereflex customer service told me that all vehicles are made differently off the assembly line and some are different from others. He said the Tereflex parts are meant to fit the average Jeep. Well if so, why is it too long for my vehicle? His answer is like asking a chemist a question and they treat you like an idiot in their response. This is not the first time I worked on a vehicle and I wasn't born last night. I asked how to resolve this issue and Tereflex customer service told me to grind down both ends of the drag link to shorten the it to get them closer in the sleeve to align the steering wheel. So it is the recommendation from a company who advertises its parts fit a particular year and model Jeep is to modify the parts on my own? Take the time to remove the parts and have them grinded down? Ok, well I explained that I just paid over $850 for the items and should not have make any modifications because it is advertised to fit my vehicle. So now I either have to purchase a grinder and attempt to modify the parts myself or take them to someone who does that sort of thing and pay over $100+ for labor. Plus, if I/we mess up the modification, it is on me. Those are great options Tereflex, screw the customer. Frustration cannot describe my state of mind during this call. Tereflex's only option was to fix it myself. They didnt offer to replace my parts, find another solution, offer any other assistance, have me send them photos, do a video call to make sure its on correctly, or even tell me they were sorry for the problem. Just one of those, "I hear you, thanks for your interest in Tereflex, now GFY." I went to Tereflex because of its reputation for having quality parts and they are once you receive them and compare to the OEM parts. But it ends there. It appears the company could care less to help and resolve a customer's problem, especially when it is not the customer's negligence. I was planning to purchase more products from Tereflex but not now. Why would I want to purchase parts from a company that clearly does not stand behind its product and take care of the customer, especially for an item that cost me over $850. Maybe that is not much for many but it is for me. Absolutely terrible. Cant believe Im even writing this review.

Well, I my experience with Teraflex Customer service was the entire opposite from Keith. I ordered the heavy duty ball joint set and this steering kit via ExtremeTerrain. My ball joints weren't death wobble bad yet and I didn't have time to pull everything apart so the parts went into the garage for a later day. That day came a good half year later. I replaced the ball joints and discovered while replacing the drag link and tie rod that the tie rod had a manufacturer defect - one of the ends wouldn't screw in. On inspection I found that the inside thread on the main tie rod bar was poorly cut. These things happen, but the part had been in my garage for half a year, so I didn't expect any kind of warranty on it. The rod was otherwise perfectly good, so I wrote customer service at Teraflex a message and asked them for the type of thread on that rod so I can just re-tap the threads and all would be good. The response from Teraflex was to send me a new replacement rod which worked perfectly. This was a very good and unexpected experience. Allmost all the suspension parts I replaced on my Jeep are from Teraflex - yes including the lift kit and all of them fitted well and are quite heavy duty compared to stock oem parts. Needless to say, the slight wobble in my steering due to the worn factory joints is gone and the steering feels nice and tight again. Shoutout to Alisha: thanks for your help.
