Chris -

For a local source, see if you can find any local Circle Track race suppliers. They can usually get stuff like custom length tie-rods...

Are you looking just for a custom length or heavier tub, or more extreme? I would be suprised if avalanche engineering couldn't help.

My brother is building custom tie rod and draglink, he bougth some SOLID round stock and is taking that to a machine shop to have it cut to length and the ends drilled so he can then thread the ends for regualr tie-rod ends

Hmm. I think you'll find that heavy walled tubing is more rigid then the solid stock. I can't quote the physics of it, but the gut says that you are better off with tubing vs solid round stock.
