What's in the Box

Info

These 5/8" swedged steel sleeves have a 7/8" O.D. tube, 0.065 wall, and 5/8" RH and LH fine threads. Available in 1" increments from 4" to 29.5". IMCA approved. Sold Each.

Application

Tech Tip: When assembling a tube, each heim end adds approximately 1.5" to the overall length (assuming the heim is screwed into the tube half way.) If you have a heim on each end of the tube, the tube will be approximately three inches longer overall.

can these tubes be used as main links in a rear 4 bar suspension?

can these tubes be used as main links in a rear 4 bar suspension?

Answers

Yes these work fine for a 4 bar suspension on a street vehicle or circle track race car. When dealing with a serious 4x4 application or drag racing (or even a street car with with big tires) these can be very marginal for strength. Keep the diameter and wall thickness in mind when deciding if they are adequate for your application.

Wall thickness is stated at .065". I measured it at .095. Which is it? I received one of these by mistake with my last order. I kept it and used it to build something and I measure the wall T at .095" I could use more of these if the wall is really .095.

We get these tubes from various manufacturers and .065" is the minimum wall thickness that will be used. Sorry we can not guarantee these to have the .095" wall thickness that you have.
