    XD60 steering stop washers

    Curious about the eight washers that are installed on all XD60s to limit steering. Will the 1550 joint handle additional steer angle and the washers are just to be conservative?IMG_5242.jpg

    That is a good question. The 1550 wheel end can in fact handle additional steering angle. The washers are put in place to control the steering angle and protect the steering linkages on any hard hits during full steer. The steering stops are optimized for JK steering box travel. In other words if we didn’t put those in, the Jeep likely could not turn further because of the steering box travel, but if you hit a rock while turning it could push the knuckle further and damage steering components.

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.
