Polaris Ranger XP 1000 Bump Steer Delete (BSD)™ Tie Rod Kit (Patented geometry location. Patent # 9,988,083 B1)
Our BSD™ Tie rod kit does wonders for the Polaris Ranger XP 1000. Through rigorous testing of our shop car, we found that the Ranger had a lot of steering wheel feedback. After cycling the front suspension we found a good amount of bump steer in the factory system. Bump steer is a change in toe setting (front of tires closer together than the rear of the tires) through the cycle of front suspension travel. The best set up is as close to zero toe change as possible. If your front tires change toe setting they are essentially doing the same thing as you turning the steering wheel slightly on every bump you hit. Bump steer is one of the biggest contributors to steering wheel feedback, twitchy drive ability, excessive front end wear and worn out forearms from trying to keep the car straight. So in an effort to eliminate all of these things we developed our BSD™ (bump steer delete™) tie rod kit for the Defender. Our kit relocates the outer tie rod pivot point which changes the front end geometry. With the bump steer removed the car is much easier to drive, steer and control. Your front end parts will last longer. Your car will drive more predictably. Your forearms will have no arm pump. The whole driving experience will become easier.

THIS KIT IS DESIGNED TO FIX THE GEOMETRY OF THE FACTORY ARM CONFIGURATION. ALL AFTER MARKET A ARMS CONFIGURATIONS PRODUCE A DIFFERENT AMOUNT OF BUMP STEER. ***BUMP STEER MUST BE MEASURED PRIOR TO INSTALLATION OF THE KIT***
The factory car has ZERO adjust ability for alignment other than toe set. Caster and Camber can NOT be adjusted. Toe adjustment with our BSD kit will not affect any other aspect of the alignment since nothing else is adjustable.
