need help finding custom tie rod sleeves.

Recommended Posts

hello all,

 

i have a 2003 S-10 ex cab with a suspension lift.

 

anyway my suspension lift has extended tie rod sleeves that measure 14 1/2 inches long. they are bent a little and i want to replace with more heavy duty style.

 

probably need to be custom made.

 

anyone know where i can get some custom tie rod sleeves made for my S-10?

 

it is a non Zr2 but i am sure the tie rods are the same between the regular and Zr2 models.

 

any help would be greatly appreciated

 

thanks

Also check with ATVspeed at outfitters design, I think they have them for the BDS and Superlift

thanks much Vanr. did you get your heavy duty BDS replacement sleeves from outfitter designs or speedway motors?

 

do you remember how long they measured? i know the trailmasters are 14 1/2 inches. anything close would be awesome. at least now i know where to start looking.

Outfitter will make them for your lift, so they will be the right length.. I ordered up 36" and cut it in two

 

I bought the .25 walled 1 1/2 DOM on line from a metal shop.. google it up, http://www.speedymetals.com/information/Material17.html

 

I think I ordered it from speedway metals.. 14 1/2 from bung end to bung end, but I went a hair longer because I wanted the extension to be as long as possible to take up as much of the tie rod threads

 

if you do it yourself, measure twice cut once
