    Where can I get a reasonably priced tie rod with no ends (basiclly rebuildable)? I don't need the strongest thing on the market just a descent tie-rod. Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    He had rods starting at $65 (1.25" od .313 wall) and offers a beefy 1.5" od .50 wall (that is axle tube territory). Pretty cool guy I have heard.

    AFAIK, unless you have a D70HD, D80 or rockwells (or bigger), your axle tubes are thinner than 0.50" wall. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
