In recent laboratory strength tests we applied enough pulling pressure to rip apart the OEM, Aftermarket, and Kryptonite Death Grip tie rods. The OEM tie rods fail at 9000 pounds of pressure.  The much larger diameter aftermarket tie rods designed to fit lifted suspension trucks, failed at 17000 pounds of pressure. Kryptonite Death Grip tie rods held up to an incredible 21000 pounds of pressure before pulling apart.


Kryptonite steering and suspension components are warrantied for life to their original purchaser. This warranty is against any manufacturer defects, premature wear or breakage. Race it, jump it, off road it, sled pull it, wreck it, lift it, level it, lower it, I think you get it? We don’t care. If you can break it we will replace it.
