These Tie Rod Assemblies provide virtually 1-ton strength with factory tapered ends, so no modification is required. The tube is 1.25 inch OD SAE steel with .25 inch wall thickness. This is the perfect solution for preventing bent tie rod tubes from off-roading with larger tires. Complete kits with dust shields, castle nuts, cotter pins, jamb nuts and zerk fittings.
Tierod failed at connection to ball joint. Luckily I was in a parking lot and only manuvering to park. I also agree with the other reviewer in there is a lot of slop and the rolling "that is considered normal" is disturbing I am no engineer but I think the slop and rolling contributed to the failure. Mostly used on paved and mild forest roads. A few trips on the beach, never any extream wheeling.
This was an o.k set up for 31s but 33s bend and twist it hard. 35s break the TRE on the road, for the same money you can get an over the knuckle 1 ton joint set up. Live and learn
