    Will 1 ton tie rod ends fit where 1/2t tie rod ends go?

    I have a 1ton low steer tie rod I want to install in place of my 1/2t

    Thanks in advance.

    Like said, the 10/44 tie rod would be longer. Helped a buddy swap a 60 in place of his 10 and we were able to cut it down enough to work. Luckily the threads were deep enough in 10b tie rod that it worked.

    I guess it would depend on how the 60 tie rod was cut as to whether or not you could get them to work.
