Ok, I cant find a tie rod end that will work with my D44 knuckles and clear the springs so ive decided to go with Heim joints. Im planning on running FK rod ends, they seem to be the best ive seen so far and I have easy access to them. But Im a little skeptical on what size heim to run. I have access to the taps for the 7/8 shank heims, but I am wondering if I really need to run that large of heim on a steering setup for a non hydro assist setup. I can either get a .625" Bolt size heim with a .750" Shank that is rated at 40,000 lbs Static radial load. Now I just wonder if the .625" grade 8 bolt is going to be strong enough in a single shear connection. Now the next size up uses a .750" Bolt with a 7/8" shank. Now that Rod end is rated for 55,000 lbs static radial load. But I think a .750" Bolt will be strong enough in single shear to work. So in other words which size should I go with? Keep in mind I am running 35" tall tires, stepping up to 37's in the future. I dont plan on running Hydro Assist, and I do have crossover and this truck is mainly driven on the street.
