Default All Season Centerlink Brace

I just want to say how happy I am with the centerlink brace. Replaced my Cognito pitman and idler arm braces with Tony's brace and cut my best 60ft times ever. Before the brace I was toeing in and struggling cut high 1.7s. After the brace I cut 1.71 and 1.700 with the front wheels dead straight. Now that I know it works I will start leeaving even harder. I run the truck up for street driving and dropped at the track with no issue. Also have to mention this brace is cheaper than Cognito!!!! To anyone looking, it is worth the $$$

I had the same results with my 01. It has sleeves and Tony brace that's it.

Where does it mount and how does it work exactly. Curious as well as to why it won't work with a lift.

(Disclaimer: I don't have one) But from what I gather it mounts to the pitman and idler arms and uses the front diff housing for support. So if your centerlink is in the stock location, but your front diff is dropped it may not work as intended.

I've been meaning to order one. Good to know it works! The Cognito stuff is garbage.

its a simple piece, but extremely effective. I couldn't be happier. no noticeable affect on daily driving, but it definitely helps keep your wheels straight and stops your tie rods from doing the stanky leg during a 4 wheel drive launch.

so my big question, is the turning radius affected at all? the straight centerlinks i hear are worse turning radius and i swear the cognito braces affected my turning a little as well.

and if it doesnt work on a lifted truck does it not work on a lowered truck also?
