Default Opinions on Tie Rods Upgrade AKA Bump Steer Kit?

Similar to these, I am getting them because my car is sitting on Tein Coilovers and I would like an upgrade for tighter steering and less bounce. Has anyone ever had this upgrade done?

I'm not sure how a tie rod upgrade will make your steering tighter unless your existing ones are worn as hell.
From what I've read bump steer has more to do with upper control arm geometry and travel than tie rod quality.

But those do look like a nice set of ends that should last awhile.

yeah, thanks for your input. This was a proto typebut the finished product looks close. a lot of people with a drop suspension got them and said good things about them. There is a diagram that shows why these help with bump steer. If you're interested I will try to find it.

Most importantly I am looking for things to make the ride more comfortable and to increase the life of the coilovers

I'd love to see the diagram and how much these affect bump steer.
I'm far from a suspension expert but I have read up on a few things over the years.
One day I may delve into the real voodoo behind suspension dynamics.

I couldn't find the diagram that I was looking for, yet. Here is an updated photo of its internals.
