    Long shot - BMR rear tie rod ends

    One of the heim rod ends on my BMR rods has seized up. I'm thinking of replacing both with better heim ends and retain the BMR rod. Anyone know the spec on the BMR heim joints by some miracle?

    Thanks.

    Nik

    I thought they were 5/8's.

    Here is a link to a supplier:

    Thanks. Quite a few variations there. I have this feeling I'm better off making my own.

    I have teflon heims on my built rods, and they are seized.... i dont now what other options there are for heims, aside from going to link ends like i have in all my rock crawler projects, teflon heims are the best heims you can get, let us know what you end up trying

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but did you guys find that this upgrade was worthwhile? There's no way for me to see whether my rear wheels are deflecting under load, and I don't want to drop $300 on a problem that doesn't actually exist.
