Great product so far

September 21, 2010
Bought some of these and used them on the steering. The front end recently tool a hard enough hit to break a tie-rod, but the rod-end is till in new condition. They're worth the upgrade from the cheaper rod ends.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The dimensions of this heim joint match your requirements other than the thread length is 1.50" on ours. That small difference in thread length typically should not present a problem.
