What's in the Box

Info

Made of 4140 chromoly steel and zinc coated. Includes jam nuts. Choose from GM (10 degree taper) or Pinto (7 degree taper). IMCA approved.

Fitment note:
The taper of the GM style is made to fit a 1978 to 1988 G body car such as Monte Carlo, Malibu, Cutlass, Regal, etc. You will need to compare the taper measurements of this adapter to the taper size of your spindle to determine the compatibility. Measurements for reference: Degree of Taper: 10 degree Top of Taper: 0.615" Bottom of Taper: 0.460"

The taper of the Pinto style is made to 1974-1980 Pinto/Bobcat and 1974-1978 Mustang II. You will need to compare the taper measurements of this adapter to the taper size of your spindle to determine the compatibility. Measurements for reference: Degree of Taper: 7 degree Top of Taper: 0.560" Bottom of Taper: 0.630"

Pretty much exactly as advertised

March 03, 2016
A bit expensive if you have to turn the hexes down, but otherwise these are the only commercially available tapered studs that I can find in this size, so I guess they're great
Yes, I recommend this product.

Almost perfect, has a bit of runout though

February 06, 2016
Got these tapered studs for a custom project. What I'm doing requires that the hex and "seat" be machined off. When put in the lathe, there was a bit of noticable runout, but it really wasn't that bad. Other than that they're perfect
Yes, I recommend this product.

A very strong part for upgrading your suspension & steering

September 15, 2015
I used this tie-rod adapter to replace the upper ball-joint on the TR-6 front suspension in my '71 TVR. The pinto taper was a perfect fit and the suspension accepted a standard 5/8" rod-end. the benefit was allowing camber change with only 180 degrees of turn of the rod-end over 360 degrees with the ball joint. It was a true "bolt-in" change. I will pass the idea on to my TVR forum.
Pros:
  • Very Strong Heat Treating
  • Choices Of 2 Tapers
  • Well Machined
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
