    STEER SMARTS has been Removed from WAYALIFE

    CJW; Good question, the reverse taper top mount is stronger than the original joint. The no drill joint process has a large shoulder on the stud that contacts the knuckle face and a interference fit at the top of the factory drilled clearance hole. Plus we have a tapered sleeve that locks in the bottom of the stud to the factory reamed tapered hole. The stud was also induction heat treated to gain a good 30% added strength. Knuckle is stronger because you don;t have the lost material that everyone drills out. Overall, it's a very strong joint and easy to install.

    Thanks for the explanation. I'd be interested in seeing more detail on this. I'd like to see the shoulder design you're talking about. It sounds impressive if it's compensating for the joint shaft not to sheer off.

    We offer a YETI linkage that has the "no flop feature" built into the socket. That way the seal keeps the joint clean and dry.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
