Trail Safe™ Inner Axle Seal

Trail Safe Inner Axle Seal

Trail Safe Inner Axle Seal

Trail Safe Inner Axle Seal

Figure (A): Deflection gaps in the Brand X seal are the result of the spring clip opening. Fluid is allowed to bypass the seal lip through these deflection gaps. The result is a leak.

Figure (B): The Trail Safe seal lip is totally supported by a garter spring. The spring applies constant force over 360º, not allowing any deflection gaps. This means no fluid leaks.

Figure (C): The spring clip opens up under deflection and no longer supports the seal lip. A deflection gap will allow fluid to bypass the seal, resulting in a leak.

Figure (D): The Trail Safe Inner Axle Seal uses a garter spring which offers 360º of support around the seal lip during deflection. This stops fluid from bypassing the seal lip. No leaks.

Figure (E): Brand X's attempt to seal the O.D. of the seal. Generally the material is scraped off during installation, resulting in a leak.

Figure (F): The O.D. of the Trail Safe Seal is 100% rubber coated so that it forms a complete static surface seal resulting in zero leaks.

Trail Safe™ Knuckle Ball Wiper Seal

Trail Safe Knuckle Ball Wiper Seal

  Trail Safe Knuckle Ball Wiper Seal

Tired of wiping big clumps of dirty sandy grease off of your knuckle balls after every trip? So are we. We asked our engineering department to look at the problems with the OEM design along with what was currently offered on the market and they came up with a one-piece, high grade polyurethane seal that is durable and will give you a lifetime of dependability.

Trail Safe™ Knuckle Ball Wiper Seals are without a doubt the best in the industry. No other design is comparable in performance and quality.

The Trail Safe™ Knuckle Ball Wiper Seal is a double sided seal that keeps grease in and dirt out, all while eliminating the use of the OEM felt and rubber. Since it is made from seal-grade polyurethane, not UHMW, the seal is pliable enough to stretch over the knuckle ball during installation. This eliminates the need to cut the seal for installation which allows water to enter the knuckle ball and for grease to escape.

Trail Safe™ Knuckle Ball Wiper Seals are sold in pairs with our legendary Rock Rings. One kit will complete one axle.

Kit Includes:

  • (2) Trail Safe™ Knuckle Ball Seal Wipers
  • (1) Rock Ring Kit
  • (16) Rock Ring Bolts
  • (16) M6 Lock Washers

Knuckle Pull Scale

Knuckle Pull Scale

A pull scale is helpful in setting up the shims on a knuckle. By increasing the shims above and below the knuckle the knuckle becomes tighter. When installing new knuckle bearings we recommend checking the shims with a pull scale. Attach the pull scale on the steering arm with the tie rod / drag link removed and the felt on the back side of the knuckle not yet installed. The knuckle should not move until about 15 lbs of force is applied to the steering arm.

Rock Assault™ Trunnion Bearing Eliminator Kit

Trunnion Bearing Eliminator Kit

Anyone who wheels hard, rock crawls, or rock races has experienced blown up trunnion bearings, no matter what size bearings they are using, the bearing is always the point of failure. The Rock Assault™ Trunnion Bearing Eliminator Kit totally eliminates the bearings and replaces it with a solid king pin style pin that sits in a hardened bushing. The pin and bushing are made out of a material that is considered bearing quality because of its high carbon content, which gives it extreme hardness. To make sure these pins provide you with smooth steering we have added zerk grease fittings and machined the pins with grease passages and grooves so that they can easily be lubricated without any disassembly of the steering knuckle.

The Rock Assault™ Trunnion Bearing Eliminator Kit can be installed in a matter of hours and does not require you sending us your steering arms to be machined. You simply press out the pins in your 4 or 6 stud steering arms and press in the provided Trunnion Bearing Eliminator pins. The bottom pins have been preinstalled in the bottom caps and simply drop in after the lower bushings have been installed. Since you will need to disassemble your knuckle assembly to complete this install a full knuckle service kit is provided so that you can replace all seals, gaskets, and shims.

Note: Due to various machining tolerances in the current steering arms on the market, some slight reaming may be required.

This kit will not work with stock Toyota steering.

Kit includes:

  • (4) Steering pins
  • (4) Steering pin bushings
  • (4) Zerk grease fittings
  • (2) Trunnion bearing cap
  • (1) Knuckle service kit
