What's in the Box

Info

These unpolished stainless steel tie rod/drag link kits are pre-cut and tapped lengths of 7/8" O.D. tubing available in multiple lengths. Each kit comes complete with 5/8" heim joint rod ends and jam nuts.Tubing will be tapped with right-hand & left-hand threads for adjustability.

Specify desired length in comments section of shopping cart. No returns/exchange on custom length links.Select your length based on the center-to-center of the heim rod ends, which will also be the eye-to-eye distance between the steering arms (the acutal tube will be 3" shorter than length selected). At selected length, the link will be adjustable from 1/4" shorter to 1/2" longer.

Normally used with 49-54 Chevy style spindles and flat steel steering arms. Can be used with stock type Ford arms if drilled out to 5/8".

Note: Always use anti-seize to prevent galling the treads during final installation. Learn why running a tap or die over new threads is so important prior to assembly in our tech article, Installing New Hardware.

I will always buy from Speedway

June 03, 2015
I special ordered this drag link on Wednesday and Saturday I had to make adjustments which increased the length. Monday morning I called Speedway and took a chance it was not to late. I received it the following Wednesday and it was the correct length. Thank you Speedway and your customer service for coming through at the last minute.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The 5/8" rod ends used in the tie rod kit accept a 5/8" diameter bolt. If wanting to use a 1/2" bolt we offer rod end reducer part #91004111

I have a 45" steel tie rod now on my suicide front axle on a T-Bucket. The tie rod seems to have an excessive amount of flex in it and the front wheels do a lot of movement at hiway speed.It seems to me that this should not flex. I can actually pull on it in the middle of the bar and move the wheels in and out changing the toe by at least 1/4". How much flex would the stainless bar have if any? Thanks JD

If you were to pull on the bar as you described I would expect some amount of deflection, but that isn't something that I've tried to do with one of these bars. I would say that yours sounds to be much more flexible than what is ideal.
