Anyone besides Ballistic making ones that slip over the tube?

Great timing.... I need to locate some that work with a 3 1/8" x 5x16" wall tube... I kind of remember parts mike selling some but I'm not sure on the details.

Find someone with a lathe. Have them bore out a little on the backside to the tubesize so it lines up.

I believe the reason mfgs didnt offer this 20 years ago is because you will get a little bit more flex on the weld when you add leverage.

I ran into this last week. I bought a set of the ballistic slip-over bearing ends then had them machined to 3-1/8 and they worked great.

The OD is 3.5" where it slips over the tube.
it slips over about an inch and can be welded on the outside and inside

Same situation here. Opened up the Ballistics on a lathe to fit my application (can't remember it it was 3 1/8 or 3 1/4).
