Tie Rods

Tie rods connect your steering rack to the hubs. They have bushings in them and are frequently the source of slop or vibrations in a steering system. Get rid of any loose play or vibration today with new ones from Pelican.

Bump Steer Kits

Are you getting too much kick back in the steering wheel since you lowered your car? A bump steer kit corrects that problem by correcting the steering geometry.
Elephant Racing's top-performing bump steer solution is super strong and provides the sharpest, most predictable steering response. It eliminates steering knuckle twist induced toe steer. It can be used on raised spindles of any height.

Double steering knuckle - Holds tie rod end between two steering knuckles to eliminate knuckle flex regardless of bump steer spacer length. Long bump steer spacers (required with raised spindles) place bending loads that twist stock steering knuckles. Twist causes undesired toe steer. Second steering knuckle must be welded to the strut body.

Bump steer adjustable - Allows massive bump steer adjustment range in .125 inch increments. Double shear mounting provides solid support for even the longest bump steer spacing.

Rod End - Weather sealed precision rods ends included work with regular turbo tie rods. Included boots to seal out dirt and water for extended life. Elephant Racing's purpose-made rod ends are extra long to ensure proper threaded engagement with standard turbo tie rods.

Spindle height - Kits available for 19mm, 30mm, 40mm spindle height. Kits are easily modified for use with essentially any spindle height.




Cure steering wheel "kick back" when your 911 goes over a bump. A lowered car results in tie rod angularity between the steering rack and the front wheel hubs, causing road bumps to be transmitted upward to you. Weltmeister Rack spacers help restore your steering rack to stock geometry and solve the "kick back" problem. for cars lowered to a competition level, we recommend the Bump Steer Kit.

Is your car suffering from steering 'kick-back' that results from lowering your front suspension? The problem arises when the steering rack is lowered, changing the overall geometry of the tie rods with respect to the flat plane of the driving surface. The result is an annoying steering wheel jerk whenever you go over any bumps in the road. Weltmeister rack spacers restore your steering rack to stock geometry and solve this 'kick back' problem.

Rebel S Racing's Bump Steer Kit allows tie rods to be adjusted downward in extra precise 1/32" (1mm) increments. They utilize teflon/kevlar lined spherical rod ends with a full length body and allow 30 degrees of misalignment. They have a 14mm "tapered fit" 12.9 grade central shaft that wedges itself into the steering arm just like factory. Also included are machined steel spacers and castle nuts with cotter pins. Order a set of protective boots for your rod ends - Part # RSRBSK-BOOT.

Bump Steer Tie Rod Kits
Because the steering rack can move only a limited amount, steering geometry cannot be fully corrected on lowered cars using rack spacers. Now we have the solution. End tie rod angularity with this kit. Steering wheel 'kick back' is eliminated, and accurate road/track feedback is restored. Bolt-on kit uses spherical rod ends and needs no machining.
Elephant Racing's proprietary-design Adjustable Bump Steer kit delivers true adjustability in a super strong package.

Bump steer is a change in toe setting resulting from vertical wheel displacement. A car that bump-steers requires constant adjustment at the steering wheel to maintain a steady trajectory over uneven surfaces. This can be handful to drive.

The 911/914 series has some bump steer inherent even in the stock configuration. The problem becomes more severe with lowered ride height and can be extreme with spindle height modifications.

The Adjustable Bump Steer kit allows bump steer correction by altering the angle of the tie-rods. The kit replaces the tie-rod end (turbo tie-rods only) and allows easy tuning to specific vehicle needs.
  • Sturdy design grips steering knuckle.
  • Unique design actually grips steering knuckle for extra strength. Combined with a super strong 12mm grade 12.9 bolt, this is a sturdy solution.
  • Height adjustable in 1/8" increments by positioning 3 spacers above/below steering knuckle. 1/4" - 1" allowable spacing.
  • Articulates an impressive +/- 27 degrees to prevent binding at full compression and droop.
  • Optional boots keep out dirt for extended life.


If you do not have Turbo tie rods, then select the Deluxe Bump Steer kit that includes the Basic Bump Steer kit, Turbo tie rods, protective boots, and hardware.

If you are upgrading your original 911 Tie Rods to the superior 930 versions, chances are you will need a set of these shims to complete the update. The amount of thread engagement on the steering rack of the inner tie rods changed when the joints were updated, so in most backdates you will need a spacer to keep the new tie rods from bottoming out on the rack before they tighten down. These precision machined units are perfect for such conversions, providing a full face for the tie rods to be torqued against.
