Hardware need to be improved

May 08, 2014
Very unique and useful product to the industry. The fasteners furnished need some improvement. They are very thin hex nuts, like a jam nut, with only 3 threads internally. I replaced them with full height locking nuts as I feel should have been furnished.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good for body dropped trucks

August 06, 2012
Awesome part for dropping the tie rod below the frame to prevent notching it, my only issue is they don't sell a "bump steer adapter" for it. If you try to use this with the mustang II rack you will need 9/16x18 rh to 5/8 lh adapters. Speedway needs to start selling them. But for my s10 it's going to work out fine.
Pros:
  • Adjustable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Part number 91636055 is available for GM or Pinto and for the Mustang II spindles choosing Pinto would give you the correct 7 Degree taper. On the heim however we do not offer a 5/8” I.D, for the stud and 9/16 for the female threaded end for the Mustang II tie rod end. Some customers have modified the rack and pinion tie rod to accept the standard 5/8 heim end in male or female.

This part is a tie rod adapter stud to help lower the tie rod or raise the tie rod to help with bump steer and steering geometry problems. Designed for car applications it could be used for pickup applications depending on the dimensions of the tapered portion of the stud. These dimensions should help verify fit to a particular application: TAPER INFO: APPROX .460" DIA SMALL END APPROX .615" DIA LARGE END UNDER NUT END OF THREADS/BEGINNING OF TAPER TO BOTTOM OF NUT APPROX 1.055" 5/8" END IS 3" LONG WITH APPROX 2 3/4" THREADS Again this is GM taper which is 10 degree versus 7 degree for the Ford/Mopar
