right product for the job.

These radius rod brackets are very nice piece. They work perfectly with the Ford tie rod ends. They were even powder coated black for that extra bit of protection and durability.
Yes, I recommend this product.

did the job!!

June 25, 2012
had to drill out to fit 5/8" bolt....they are made to fit tapered rod end....it would be nice to offer 3/4" straight hole and then give spacers for taper or a reducer to use 5/8 or maybe 1/2"
Pros:
  • Adjustable
  • Fit my frame perfectly
Yes, I recommend this product.

So good I've used them twice!

No fabrication required to have strong, attractive mounts on your hot rod. Just bolt (or weld) on and your in business! They're so good I've used then on two cars so far. And yes, I will use this product on future builds. The only setback is you must drill the taper out to use heim joints but any rodder can handle that! Thanks for a great product I can put confidence in!
Pros:
  • Easy To Use
  • Strong
  • No fabrication required
Yes, I recommend this product.

These brackets are only available with the drilled 4 holes for bolt on applications but the brackets could be plug welded using the 4 drilled holes and then perimeter welded if desired. We also offer part number 91635052 in a strictly weld on version with brakes front and rear in the metal for additional strength. If a straight hole is desired we also offer brackets to accept ½” or 5/8” bolts when using heim ends.

When I've drilled the brackets out for use with your 5/8 heim ends, does it matter which side of the bracket faces the outside of the frame??

If these brackets are drilled straight through to accept a 5/8” bolt for heim end applications the customer has the option to mount them with the roid on the outside of the frame or on the inside. This may be beneficial to work with different frame widths to keep bind off the clevis at the front without having to bend or alter the welded on brackets on the axle. If using heim ends we recommend the use of a cone spacer between the heim and the bracket. The other option would simply be personal preference.
