    Replacement pillowball on spl tie rods?

    Both of mine have lots of play... worn out by now...

    I am wondering what would I get as a replacement?

    I have I think v3 if not v4, but definetely not the v5... they all look the same im not sure what they changed...

    From what i could google there is a mention of a qa1 5/8" is that correct? And if yes where could i order it from?

    There's too many choices and I'm not sure which they are.

    Trust us, just using the inner tie rods like stock makes MUCH more sense and makes things way way easier.
    Ditto!. I am building a set and using the 65deg PCYMR10T's RH. You just need to turn the inner tie rod to adjust.

    *edit, unless that shank is like 3/4" or something odd, toss a mic on it I guess and check that first but the threads are 5/8-18 RH.
    Why would they not be RH thread? The toe is adjusted by the inner tie rod, just like stock.

    eh I guess I can see your point there. However it still doesn't change my dilemma of needing RH thread rod ends or a custom LH/RH turnbuckle to even screw these rod ends in.

    These don't need to be adjustable, since the factory tie rod can still be used for adjusting the toe. I wouldn't want R+L threads both adjusting toe at that point because the adjustment would be pretty coarse.

    On mine, I just lock the rod end down with the jam nut and adjustby turning the inner tie rod, just like stock.

    Yeah I just search QA1 65 degrees and found that as well.

    Just call Kuah and verify.

    Sorry for the misinformation earlier -- that's what i get for glancing at thread titles.

    Sorry, I thought you meant for the control arms.

    Not sure on the tie rods.

    McCoy I will I guess, I was just hoping to buy direct myself but need to know what exactly. It would be cheaper for me locally than paying shipping/etc...
