Cross steering means the drag link reaches across the car and attaches to the passenger-side steering arm. If that steering arm has only one hole, you'll need to build the tie rod with this tie rod end on the RH side. Then the drag link attaches to the eyelet (which is tapered 1/2 way from both sides.)
Note: When using the cross steering end, the tube length will need to be 6" shorter than the eye-to-eye length. Example: A 46" kit will need 40" tube length.
Every once in a while someone wants to use a rod end in place of a 11/16" tie rod. We listened to the requests and built them with 11/16"-18 RH or LH thread and accept a 5/8" thru-bolt. Center of hole to end of threads 2-5/8" thead length is 1-1/2".
Replace those sloppy worn out tie rods with our new replacements. Original equipment on 1948-1964 Ford half-ton pickups, but these tie rod ends can be used for multiple applications other than Ford trucks. Not for use with flat steering arms. Use only with Ford type steering arms with a tapered hole. Not normally used with Chevy spindles.
These tie rod ends are just like our standard Ford tie rod ends except they are made of beautifully polished stainless steel. They have 11/16"-18 thread and include hardware. Make sure to use anti-seize on the threads.
These tie rod ends are just like our standard Ford 7° taper tie rod ends except they are made of beautifully chrome plated steel. They have 11/16"-18 threads and include hardware. Make sure to use anti-seize on the threads.
Plain steel fine thread jam nuts for use with rod ends, heim joints, and clevis.
Apply Pro-Blend anti-seize directly to any metal surface that may gall or seize due to heat, pressure, torque loading or shock. Excellent in environments of gas, alcohol, water, solvents, dirt, sand, and grit.

We supply those hard-to-find industrial taps. 4-flutes. Choose left hand or right hand thread for each tap.
