Q & A

What's in the Box

Cross steering means the drag link reaches across the car and attaches to the passenger-side steering arm. If that steering arm has only one hole, you'll need to build the tie rod with this tie rod end on the RH side. Then the drag link attaches to the eyelet (which is tapered 1/2 way from both sides.)
  • Not for use with flat steering arms
  • Use only with Ford type steering arms with a tapered hole
  • Not normally used with Chevy spindles

Note: When using the cross steering end, the tube length will need to be 6" shorter than the eye-to-eye length. Example: A 46" kit will need 40" tube length.

Used this on right hand drive postal Jee

March 27, 2015
The correct left side tie rod is out of production for the postal jeeps so I used this.The angle is different since it's basically swapped to the other side for use on the RHD but there's no binding.
Pros:
  • saves the day
Cons:
  • angle is off but still works
Yes, I recommend this product.

Center tie rod hole It says tapered half way on both sides,does that mean the tie rod hole has a 7degree taper on each end half way so that a tie rod will work on either side? Thanks

Yes this is tapered on both sides, with the middle of the hole being the smallest point.

You might be able to retrofit this onto your application but we have no experience doing so. With '49 to '54 Chevy car spindles on hot rod tube axles there are not any steering arms available that accept tapered tie rod ends. We always use 5/8" heim joints on those applications.

Plain Tie Rod/Drag Link Kit with 11/16 Tie Rod Ends
(Part #91632504)
                        

These tie rod or drag link kits are pre-cut and tapped lengths of 7⁄8" O.D. tubing available multiple lengths. Kits come complete with 11/16" traditional 7° tie rod ends and jam nuts. Tubing will be tapped with right-hand & left-hand threads for adjustability.

Select your length based on the center-to-center of the tie 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 1/2" shorter to 3/4" longer.
