steer cylinder clevis ends

I know that PSC and the like have clevis ends for their steer cylinders that have a 3/4x16 threaded end but only accept a 5/8 heim. I know that I have seen a company that make a 3/4x16 end but uses a 3/4 heim. Anybody have any ideas or am I just crazy? I have been searching google all morning and could not find them again. If I am crazy and no such product exists, for those of you running full hydro are you using a 5/8 heim on the cylinder and then a 3/4 heim on the steer arms or have you made some other set-up. Also why are steer arms only in single shear and not double shear.

I have Station's cylinder with 3/4" clevis ends. Performance Offroad Steering. The number is in Dibble's signature.
When I did the high steer arms for the 2.5 ton front I put the heim in double on the arm too. No worries ever then.

Wait, are you trying to find a heim (SRE) in 3/4 bore, 3/4 threads? Very common, perhaps I'm misunderstanding your question?

Hijack - are standard 3/4" SRE's going to be strong enough in a rear steer app with 52's? I've been looking all over for a 7/8" or 1" SRE that doesn't break the bank.

Seems to me rear steer and 52's and maintaining a budget are mutually exclusive

That picture makes my magazine backgrounds look a little poindexter.

PS Those clevises are really hot. Had I known those existed, I probably wouldn't have DIY'ed mine.

A 5/8" bore 3/4" shank heim in dual shear is plenty. Go cross reference the load ratings.

5/8" heat treated heim info.

3/4" heat treated heim

Make sure to look at the RSMX10 vrs. JMX12

Yeah , but the wear life expectancy of those sucks. The ball is just so small , and the bearing surface pressures are much higher thn they are in a 3/4" bore heim. I personally run a 7/8" x 3/4" rod end on everything og\f mine for that reason. It doesn't really weigh any more , and only costs a few dollars more. It has atleast twice the bearing surface are of a 3/4" x 5/8".

I keep clevice end kits in stock all the time. Price is $85 per set with all the hardware when you are buying them without one of my cylinders. If I am going to make somebody elses cylinder look good you are going to atleast have to pay to do it.

Sean
