What's in the Box

Precision steel rod ends provide greater strength than our "standard" rod ends. They have close tolerance and have a 3 piece medium duty rod end. Carbon steel body, 5210 precision ground ball and feature a Teflon Kevlar race. Self lubrication teflon liner to seal out dirt and debris. Shank and hole are the same size.

Applications: Clutch, Brake, Steering & Suspension Components. Quieter, Smoother, & More Durable Than 2 Piece Rod Ends. Tight Tolerance of Kevlar Race Reduces "Slop" In Steering & Suspension.

ASSEMBLY TIP:
To ease assembly, be sure to run a tap or die through the threads on chrome plated fasteners and apply an anti-seize compound to prevent galling of the threads.
