I just bought this last night DMAXSTORE Ultimate Front End Package [DMAX20] - $439.99 : DMAXSTORE.COM, Your Duramax Diesel-Only Shopping Resource
I went with the sleeves for now because my tie rods are still good, for now anyway.

I would stay clear of the Cognito tierods. They dont last very long. I have Fabtech and they are holding up well.
I was wondering if that could prolong my parts some. I need to look at mine a little closer.

Just get new Moog idler/pitman arms and get the braces with them so you wont have to worry about them. Theres no point leaving a bad part on your truck it wont do anythin but get worse IMO.

I bought the package from dmaxstore with pit and idler with cognito braces and went with the krytonite tie rods and it changed the whole feel of my truck. Watch out when pulling the pitman arm off I popped the sector shaft seal and had to get a new steering box.

The only way to know is to try them out, about how much hp are you running jason.
Norcal did you use a pitman arm puller when you did that?

Jason what were you doing when you broke the tie rod? 4wd LAUNCH? Mud Riding?
