Info

These radius rod building gauge bars are a simple tool for setting the length of tie rods and radius rods on your street rod, modified, or sprint car racing chassis. Perfect for the at-home custom builder, they also work great for determining length needed for drag links, four-link systems, and other linkage rods.  Simply match the gauge bar ends up with your heim joint or rod ends and use the adjusting knob to slide the end to your desired placement. Mark the new length and you're ready to create your own custom length radius rods!

Designed for use with 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" rod ends, and with an overall length of 32", you can be sure to build the perfect rod linkage assembly for your specific application.  Test! - Don't Guess!, with DECO chassis tools.

Great looking tool

August 19, 2015
The quality and price are great. Have not had an opportunity to use it yet but it is pretty self explanatory. I did not have it at the track with me and we bent a tie rod. If I had this there, would have got the measurements closer to start with. Now it will go with us to every race.
Pros:
  • nice quality
  • Price
Cons:
  • Little Long For Storage
Yes, I recommend this product.

tool is useful and allows for repeated a

May 10, 2014
Tool works great and is good especially if you need to make up multiples of same size rods. however it will not work with 3/4 rod rod ends as the boss for that size is to large.
Pros:
  • accurate repeatability
Cons:
  • 3/4 rod ends don't fit
Yes, I recommend this product.
