I am putting a D60 front in my 78 Bronco. I am going to use the factory coils or coil-overs (havent decided yet)and doing away with the factory radius arms. My question is what size of tubing and rod ends would be good to use? My Bronco weighs close to 6K. Thanks

Are you sure your not talking about the 1 1/4" shank by 1" rod ends piggs? <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> Then all you need is some 1 5/8" od by .25 wall dom tubing. Bore it out just a tad and tap it for the rod ends. Mucho beefy!

Were would be a place to order those? I'm looking for something strong enough for a 4-link setup. But that also won't break the bank.

I get em from aurora 630 859 2030 except that area code changed now I think. They are in Aurora IL, so call 411 if that # don't work. KM-16T is right hand Kb-16T is left hand. The larger body with the smaller bore allows more misalignment than other sizes, Rated load 43,000 LBS weight 2.4 LBs thread 1 1/4 - 12

Also made of heat treated alloy you can buy xam-16 and xab-16 rated load 76,000 lbs. heat treated body is the only difference, oh and they say that "they are for racecars" but if you think that you need those.... <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

I'm useing endura xm10-12 (5/8 bore x 3/4 shank) 40,000 lb joints and they seem to do the trick so far, I've broken other 3/4 joints, but not the xm series ( not yet anyways ) I get them from ronendsupply.com
