I really do not want to use rod-end bearings for my street driven cars A arms.
In addition to being harsh I don't think they hold up that well on the street.

Some years ago I saw what I need offered for sale but cannot locate anything of the sort now.
If they are truly off the market I may begin producing my own as I doubt that I am the only one who would find them useful.

Pretty simple part, could be done by welding a tab on a short tube but I prefer billet CNC.
Basically a bushed end that fits a clevis at right angles to allow up to 45ยบ of articulation.
Should make A arms a breeze to make. :!:

I need a picture. Rod ends have problems but hey can flex in all sorts of useful directions. I know because I'm using A-H Sprite parts.

May be easier to just make a sample, my 3D CAD skills are poor. :(

Yes it may.
Knowing who was selling them I can now look to see if they are still available.

EDIT: Still listed, in RH and LH thread, different sizes, plain and chrome.
Plain at $50.00 each.
Actually not a bad price considering that they do include the bushing, clevis portion and other hardware.
