Product Description

Track Rod Guard – Fits Discovery 1 / RRC / Defenders

(fits with original anti-sway bar, if required)



These Track Rod Guards bolt onto your front axle using the existing bolts and mounting points on the axle, with the earlier front axle that does not have the anti roll bar brackets fitted to the axle, 2 mounting plates are provided to attach to the front trailing arm mounting bolts to make the guard more secure.

This guard can also be fitted if you have a QT or other similar wrap-around diff guard. The back of the diff guard needs to be cut off, two holes drilled in it and then it will bolt onto the track rod guard.. There is a bracket welded to the track rod guard ready for the diff guard.

Most heavy duty track rods such as our Sumobars will fit inside these guards to give the ultimate steering protection for the rear track rod. The rear track rod is the first thing you bend when you go seriously off-roading. You can even bend a heavy duty steering arm without one of these guards fitted (ask us how we know!). It also has a skid plate on the front part to help you lift over rocks and tree stumps. There is no need to remove the track rod ends to remove the track rod arm from inside the guard as there should be ample room inside. To remove the track rod from the guard, undo the R/H track rod end and loosen from the hub, then turn steering full lock to the right and lift out the track rod end. Do the same to the L/H side and turn the steering full lock to the left and lift track rod end out. Now the track rod arm and track rod ends should pull out through the guard.

The guard is galvanized for corrosion resistance. This is a heavy duty hot zinc dip process and may show surface imperfections. Can be painted, but paint will not adhere well without a suitable etch primer.
