Get some 3/4" fine thread all thread. Cut to length. Weld a nut on one end. Take 2 nuts and weld a c shaped strap between them that will span the width of the heim joint.

no. The nuts are spaced on either side of the heim by the c strap. This allows you to turn the rod and the two nuts connected will slide the pull bar from side to side.

I use coarse thread--makes it a lot quicker adjusting. Just make sure its high tensile -dont get cheap, soft threaded rod and take a chance of it breaking/bending.

I paid $21.90 and ordered it through a Harris dealer. On the Harris web site, it does not have a picture of one. Harris auto racing phone number is 800-833-5174.

I'm in the wrong bussiness. You can make one for less than $1.00.

Like a previous posted said make sure you use good hard threaded rod. The regular off the shelf hardware store brand will bend.

We had ours made from solid steel rod with threads cut in it.

Now, if you move the rearend side left or right, do you also have to move the frame side also?

if you can only move the rear it will help some but will not have quite the effect of moving front and rear together.

I think Jet Racing also sells them. If you move just the one on the rear end, and you move it too far it will probably just bind up.
