Roadsafe Heavy Duty Drag Links/Track Rods/Tie Rods
As part of the front end range, Roadsafe offer a full compliment of ‘long rods’. Featuring a variety of Drag Links, Centre Rods, Track Rods and Side Rods, Roadsafe offer over 200 catalogued numbers, suiting hundreds of known vehicle applications. A key feature of the Roadsafe product range is development and range rationalization. Where it is identified that a ‘small difference’ is evident between components on similar models, Roadsafe investigate ways of rationalizing so only one component will cover for both applications. Such is the case with the Drag Links for the Nissan Patrol. The Roadsafe Nissan Patrol Drag Links – DL700S and DL710S – have been designed based on a combination of the two different styles that are present for each application.
Basically the DL700S replaces the two genuine drag links listed for the GQ Patrol and the DL710S replaces the two genuine links listed for the GU Patrol. Since the only difference between the genuine models is the steering damper brackets – the team at Roadsafe designed the new components with two brackets on each item to allow for fitment for either application in the range. While at the drawing board, the links were also designed to be Heavy Duty, with additional heavy duty replaceable ends, and adjustable to suit for lifted vehicles. A worn ‘long rod’ can cause a variety of steering related issues including wandering, erratic steering and excessive tyre wear.
