Q & A

What's in the Box

Swedged aluminum steering panhard and radius rods that are 3/4" x .120 round 6061-T6 and tapped R/H & L/H for 3/8"-24 thread rod ends. Stocked in lengths from 4" to 38-1/2"" in 1/2" increments.


Application

Tech Tip: When assembling a tube, each heim end adds approximately 1.5" to the overall length (assuming the heim is screwed into the tube half way.) If you have a heim on each end of the tube, the tube will be approximately three inches longer overall.

Nicer than I expected

September 26, 2013
I purchased the 4" to connect a sway bar, and for the cost I expected a plain piece of threaded tube. These are nicely polished, have a smooth taper from the ends to the middle, and look much nicer than what I expected. Functionally, they are threaded nice and perform the task as they should.
Pros:
  • Quality
  • Finish
Cons:
  • None
Yes, I recommend this product.

good but could be better

August 27, 2010
The product is great because it is quality work, and I use these rods for everything from a panhard bar to a radius rod, but sometimes when I receive the rods my team needs to clean the threads with a tap and it is sometimes an inconvenience to us.
Pros:
  • Quality
  • Reliablitity
Yes, I recommend this product.
