    Tapered reamer for TRE\'s

    What is the correct taper for the Tie Rod Ends listed below?

    ES2234R Short Chevy & ES2010L Short Dodge

    Is it 1.5" per foot or 2" per foot?

    Almost absolutely positive that it's 1.5 per foot.

    Does anyone know what is the taper for the cone washers on a 44 arm?

    Jason, I know that you asked this question a while back but did not get a reply on your post. Did you find the answer from another B-Board or another way? I don't want to buy a 1.5" per foot reamer only to find it's the wrong one. I can find places that sell them but no cross reference to what they actually fit.

    there is a thread where someone gives the machinists name for the taper.
    fuzzy but if IIRC it is 7deg so niether of those is perfect.
    I bought the Snapononeand it isnt bang on
