3 things are needed to successfully drive your Land Rover  - GO, STOP and STEER.   APT know this and have manufactured this APT 4130 Chromoly Drag Link in Australia specifically for the Discovery 1 and Range Rover Classic to ensure the safe steering of your truck in Australia’s tough conditions.

The drag link connects the steering box and the passenger wheel on the Land Rover, it sits low where it is vulnerable to hits when 4x4 ing. It is also prone to damage from excessive compression loads when steering the weight of the vehicle against a rock or embankment.  These compression loads and hits while 4 wheeling can result in the thin factory wall of the drag link bending. With the right tools, it is possible to straighten the drag link enough to allow you to drive home but your safety is now compromised so the 4 wheeling adventure is over for the day. 

The APT Drag link is made from super duty 4130 tube chromoly which is 6.36 mm thick and is a massive 760 MPa.  The standard mild steel used in many drag links is 200MPa, making the APT drag link nearly 4 times stronger.  The reason APT uses tube rather than a solid steel bar is so the drag link has an inherent amount of flex.  When the solid bar does not flex when it takes a decent hit, it transfers the energy to the next weakest point… and shears your tie rod ends (and you are stuck).  

Designed to specifically fit the Discovery 1 and Range Rover Classic, the APT Chromoly 4130 Drag Link 4 Ball Joint is less prone to failure and is a straight drop in replacement.  Precisely machined left and right hand threads means you can reuse your original tie rod ends and enjoy a straight forward adjustment at alignment time. Quality heavy duty lock nuts are machined out of 1020 steel.  

 Don’t get stuck trackside with an impossible repair.
