80-series Tie Rod End (TRE) Kit. If your Land Cruiser has seen a few miles or is feeling a little loose in the steering then its time to restore that precision feel you once had. If you have stock steering links or our HD Marlinks, this kit will allow you to switch out your worn or high mileage steering tie rod ends.

All Tie Rod Ends are manufactured in Japan by 555, an original Toyota supplier!
This kit only includes the above four Tie Rod Ends. Sorry we do not offer each TRE separately.
NOTE: Some components may need paint to prevent rust. To ensure the best rust protection always treat parts annually even when they are manufactured with a anti-corrosive treatment.
Compare Our Kit vs. Typical Aftermarket Kit
Below left is a typical approach to “upgrading” the FJ80 steering system that alters the factory design of the steering stabilizer mount by using an over-the-counter u-bolt kit adopted from a Mini Truck. This is not what we do! Marlin Crawler’s Heavy Duty TRE Kit utilizes an authentic Japanese-made OEM relay rod upper tie rod end featuring a proper tapered steering stabilizer mount. The difference is huge! Our employees have wheeled FJ80’s, FZJ80’s, and LX450’s and would never compromise for such a horrible and unreliable modification to their steering system.

Cheap kits misalign the stabilizer, placing it
in a bind that will soon become loose
Marlin Crawler’s HD kit uses
the original mounting location!
Not only does our kit mount the stabilizer correctly, but it uses the proper Toyota tapered hardware that OEM and aftermarket stabilizers come with for a proper strong, sturdy, and long lasting mount. Using a tapered bolt with a flat plate, the typical aftermarket kit becomes loose overtime from its wobbly and out of alignment fit. We cannot recommend that for your Land Cruiser!
