RockJock® Modular Extreme Duty Steering Rod End Forgings are found incorporated into many of our steering systems, but are also available individually for universal usage when custom steering is being fabricated.
This specific end features an offset bend, 1 1/4" LH threads and is most commonly used on tie rods to assist in pushing the tie rod tube outward to clear differential covers.
We offer various rod end cartridges that are able to be installed into this forging (from the top or the bottom) to allow the completed rod end to then bolt into factory JL/JT, factory JK and 1 ton tapers.
