First we started off with hex bar instead of round bar that requires flat cuts to be grooved on them, hence reducing strength. With hex bar, this eliminates the need for any weakening of the rod itself.
Next we decided to stay away from the usual 4340 pins and opted to go with 300M material. This is the same material that is used in landing gear of every airplane you have ever flown on.
Lastly, certain design concepts have weak points in them, and your center pins controlling your steering should never be one of them. We can’t give away all of our design secrets, but let’s just say certain shapes yield higher stress concentrations that make our tie rods stronger than others.
RPG has brought to you these industry-leading steering tie rods at the unbelievably low introductory price of $699. You simply won’t find this kind of quality at this price, ANYWHERE. One thing is certain:
Not all aftermarket steering tie rods are created the same.
• 300M Pins = 2x Stronger than 4340 Heat Treated
