Q & A

What's in the Box

Swedged aluminum steering panhard and radius rods that are 3/4" x .120 round 6061-T6 and tapped for 7/16"-20 thread rod ends. Stocked in several lengths.

 

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.
