Solving center link bushing wear on chevy/gmc hd trucks

The Problem

Early failure of the OE center link bushing is a common problem on certain 2013-2018 Chevrolet/GMC 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickups, primarily those with a regular or extended cab. The steering system center link on these vehicles utilizes a rubber bushing at the Pitman arm mounting point to minimize shock. Due to the demands placed on the steering systems of these hardworking trucks, the OE center link bushing can suffer premature wear and failure.

Resolving the issue with an OE bushing isn’t a straightforward repair – the OE center link bushing isn’t available to purchase separately. To correct the problem, the entire center link must be replaced.
