Tie Rod bushing repair

Recommended Posts

CVSB10JCS

Asked several times if anyone rebuilds tie rod with the HEIM joints with no response, so am looking to install larger bushings and then file hole in tie rod ends bigger. has anyone done this and has the part number/size of the bigger bushing?  Otherwise will spend some time at the hardware store this Saturday.

Hello Jeff - I looked to see that one of your earlier posts also refers to the drag link. There has been previous discussion about using Heim joints. It seems to be an easy replacement on the drag link, because the rod is already threaded. The Tie rod would have to be threaded and you would have to measure the joints you would use to make sure that you get the correct length on the completed tie rod. IMO, too much work form minimal gain. Are the holed in the tie rod egged out that you need larger bushings> A replacement tie rod could likely be had pretty cheap!
