Guys, I'm looking for some ideas on a build and was wondering if its acceptable to use class-8 truck tie rods and tie rod ends in suspension links instead of heim joints? Seems like they'd be cheaper, dirt-resistant and grease able.
I recently needed to build a tie rod. I took my old tie rod into a steel supplier to match it to some tubing. The closest was a half inch black pipe. I bought a 32" length and had it tapped for the tie rod ends. Everything bolted up well, but I have become concerned with the idea of using pipe...
