New from IRP, Steel Racing Rod Ends for the front and rear upper control arms. this was not an easy proposition due to many issue. The major issue with these was the articulation and clearance issues, geometry, compatability with different a-arm manufactures, and the use of mostly existing stock parts, and durability. The articulation issue is resolved by a unique " 2 piece high angle standoff ", there will be 2 standoffs per rod end,1 top and 1 bottom. these are made of steel, not billet so they will not wear over time against the steel rod end ball. you can see in the pics how unique these really are. the final version will be 1 to 2mm shorter on the top and bottom standoff. the stock rod end bolt will still be used. All prelim testing to this point show no change in the stock geometry. The clearance issue is a bit touchy for the rear when used with stock axle hubs, i strongly advise using axle exteneders on the rear so the wheel flex issue does not come into play. The compatability issue to this point is as follows, stock, rpm, flm and rc4wd a-arms were taken into account and so far so good... Durability, these are hardend steel female rod ends, with chrome hard plated balls, there is no issue here. The rears will come with the 2 rod ends,4 high angle standoffs, and a billet center spacer with washersfor each side that will allow for camber adjustability, simply add or subtract washers to get the desired positive or negative camber angle. The final version of the center spacer will have a 1 to 2mm deep and a 4mm wide groove cut in the center to clean up the looks . The stock tie rod is used so no need for any special tie rod. The front rod ends are pretty staight forward, you will get 2 rod ends, 2 new button head screws to replace the stock screw thru the control arm, this is to get the proper threads for the rod ends, 4 high angle standoffs. the stock bolt will be used to go thru the rod end ball, the stock camber spacers are still used as well. This is a complete set of front/rear ends, as shown in the picture.
The rear rod ends in this set are not designed for hostile hubs.  Hostile rear hubs use TR339, and the front use TR333.
