Dear Welder Series… thru frame tie rod end mount on the rear?

Dear Welder Series…
I have a question concerning your thru frame hair pin mounts. Have you ever seen them used on rear radius rods with a single front mount?

Dear Steve…
Hi, Steve.  I haven’t seen them used in that type of rear suspension.  But I believe our through-frame mount would be stronger than any other tie rod end mount.  The amount of support for the tapered stud, from the large area of the tapered stud to the button head is 2”, so actually wider than for any tapered hole bracket.

I hope this answers your question, but please expand on it if I missed your point.

Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts.

Low West Hot Rods sent us some pictures of a neat installation of our tie rod end mount kit, and I thought I should share them!

Dear Welder Series… Thru-Frame Tie Rod End Mount question

Dear Welder Series…
Hi I was wondering if your through frame radius rod end kit fits on to 27″ hairpins or is it able to be adapted with some threaded tube and some cutting and welding?


Dear Aaron…
Aaron, our thru’-frame kit is made to work with early Ford (generally 1940 – 48) tie rod ends. These tie rod ends have a male thread 11/16-18. If your radius rods can accept this tie rod end, I feel our kit will work. (Tie rod ends are not included in the kit.)

Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts.
