tie rod ends

I priced out some new tie rod ends today the long one they are proud of 75.99 the short one is only 20 bucks and the coupler is 6.99 has anyone done or thought about cutting the end off of the long one and threading the long part so youcan use the shorter cheaper tie rod end. I was thinking about trying it. plus it would make life easier for wheeling you wouldn't have the bulk of carring an extra tie rod end that long.

Re: tie rod ends

Or you could avoid ever needing another tie rod by buying a www.rockstomper.com Rock Rod. Good price too..........and with the two ends they can provide you're good to go.

See pic of it below.

Re: tie rod ends

actually, I think MOOG has a lifetime warranty on theirs. You may be able to rig something up so it'll be cheaper. Some 3/4 tons had a long tube, threaded on both ends for the small tie rod ends. Try and find one of those.

Re: tie rod ends

Find the tie rod setup from a '87 to '91, with a straight axle. You can buy Moog's best (with lifetime warrenty) for around $24 per side. 1/2t, 3/4t & 1t are all the same beef.

Re: tie rod ends

Actually don't tell them you ave a 1/2 ton. The parts aren't all the same size and don't fit. Tell them you have A 3/4 ton Suburban from 87-91

Re: tie rod ends

The 3/4t is different? The guy at Arnold's told me they were all the same unless you had a 4.10 ratio???? Humm.........
