trac bar and tie rod ends?

Hey guys have a few questions. First off, is there an aftermarket replacement for tie rod ends that will last longer that 27k? I have replaced mine going on the 3rd time in 3 years. This last set lasted 27K miles. I run an 18" wheel with the Carli starter kit and 35" tires. Would love to find something that actually lasts. My trac bar is also bad but it was a carli one. Are those warrantied at all? I haven't had a chance to look...

Thanks guys

tierods and tracbar

Not sure how you use your truck but if your going thru tierods at that rate and everything else is normal, I would give Doug Thuren a call or email.
He has some really heavy duty custom stuff and was very helpful to answer questions.
link to his site
Thuren Fabrication- Crossover steering kits
As far as Carli track bar issue You should contact the dealer you bought it from or Carli directly to discuss. I always talk to Pat Losko ,very helpful guy, his email is, phone (888) 99-CARLI
I had an self inflicted issue with Carli torsion sway bay and the guys/girls at Carli had the replacement part across the country overnight !
I know some of these trucks end up with a rounded out bolt hole for mounting track bar and at that point your going to have to fix mounting holes.
Make sure bolts are torqued, I went 5lbs over these specs ,some torque wrenches could read +/- 5%

- 14mm Bolts (18mm Socket): Tighten to 180 lbs/ft.
- 16mm Bolts (21mm Socket): Tighten to 215 lbs/ft.

I have Carli track bar, there is no lube point on heim end, so I spray heim joint end with a little silicon every once and while and grease urethane bushing end with Redline CV2.
Good luck
