'05+ SuperDuty aftermarket track bar

I'm swapping in a Dana 60 from an '07 SuperDuty. It came with the track bar and frame mount, but that's not going to work for my application. I plan on just making an adjustable track bar out of DOM and 2 heims and then fabbing up a frame mount, but for the axle side, I really don't want to use the factory ball joint, as I hear those wear out pretty quickly. I saw this kit from ReadyLIFT that replaces the factory ball joint with a clevis so that you can mount a heim. I don't believe they sell just the clevis alone though, and I don't feel like paying $650 for the whole kit. Does anyone know of any other solution or product sold? I know these axles are pretty popular for swaps, so this problem must have been solved already.

Plate, drill and a cutoff wheel. Mock your bracket up with card paper and copy to steel.

I’d like to use the stock mounting location on the axle, I would just like to eliminate the ball joint with something that would allow me to run a heim instead

Yeah that’s what I’m going to have to do, just figured there was already something out there that would save me some time. Didn’t want to reinvent the wheel if I didn’t have to.

You're not reinventing the wheel, just a new trac bar mount

Make sure you brace the shit out of it.
