This chromoly tapered shank will fit the F-150 knuckles and pitman arm to provide a good, solid mounting point for the heim joint/rod end. The F150 ends are bigger and stronger than stock tie rods. This provides a much more secure way to mount the heim to your knuckles and pitman arm.
The gold zinc-coated stud is heat treated to 45 RC 4130 and is designed to use a 3/4″ heim joint. Designed with two flat spots (wrench reliefs) on the top of the stud so you can prevent the stud from turning when removing the nut – something you cannot do with a standard tie rod end.
Kit includes one stud and two locking nuts.
Reaming is required for all 66-77 knuckles (drum or disc), tie rod over “TRO”, or tie rod under “TRU”.
If you are using F150 knuckles, these are a direct install for TRU.
For TRO for all knuckles (except 76-77) you will need to ream, and use our TRO bushing.
