Q & A

What's in the Box

Don't settle for a weak 4-bar end made out of a piece of tubing welded to a bolt. These Speedway rod ends are made from forged steel for superior strength and durability. All rod ends feature a 5/8"-18 RH threaded shank and the nylon bushing has a steel sleeve that accepts a 1/2" bolt. Rod ends come in three different configurations:

Choose from straight, 7° or 11° angled shanks.

  • Straight Shank
    • Mounting eye is perpendicular to threaded shank
    • 5/8"-18 RH threads 
    • Center of mounting eye to end of threads is 2-7/8"
  • 7° Shank
    • Mounting eye is offset 7° from perpendicular to threaded shank (with the bushing side down, the stud will be angled up at a 7° angle)
    • 5/8"-18 RH threads 
    • Center of mounting eye to end of threads on short side is 2-13/16"
    • Center of mounting eye to end of threads on long side is 2-15/16"
  • 11° Shank
    • Mounting eye is offset 11° from perpendicular to threaded shank (with the bushing side down, the stud will be angled up at a 11° angle)
    • 5/8"-18 RH threads

Merchant Response:

Please note that these rod ends are intended to be used for a 4-bar type suspension only. If wishing to use these for a control arm fabrication or custom fabrication, please refer to using a spherical heim type end to allow for the movement needed for a control arm type design.

Used with the swedged tubes for an import toe adjustment bars. had to reduce one end, but couldn't of worked any better. Could have bought the stainless ones, but no one will ever see them, too bad though, they look great. Use antiseize on threads or you will regret it next time you need an alignment. Looking for something else to use them for. Awesome product
Pros:
  • Easy To Use

Speedway four bar ends number 91008001 could be used on both ends of a four link set up with a straight axle. The panhard bar needs to be installed parallel to the axle at ride height with the weight on the axle to limit most of the twist and bind and prolong bushing life.

Four bar ends number 91008001 could be used on a ladder bar rear suspension as long as ladder bar is fairly level with the ground when ready to go, held centered with a panhard bar and articulation is limited.

I see a pan hard bar is recomended with these units, not designed for side load. Is this still the case using them for top triangular mount?

Part number 91008001 On a regular parallel four bar set up a panhard bar is needed to keep the rear end centered and the continual changing side load on the rod ends. On a triangulated four bar there is not a need for a panhard bar because of the design and the urethane bushings work fine when the triangulated four link is properly installed.

The bushings in these four bar ends are serviceable under part number 91008015. As far as longevity or life span there are numerous factors that carry influence on the bushings. On a front or rear axle application you will need to use a panhard bar or watts link to keep the side load off the bushings. They are NOT designed to handle side ways movement and in an application where this may be present we recommend the use of a heim end to handle the load and movement.
