R-Joint XL rod end with 1″-14 left hand thread. Includes spacers to create 9/16″ I.D. and 2-5/8″ width. Other bolt sizes and width’s also available.
R-Joints are a revolutionary rod end design that provides low friction, full range articulation, long service life, lateral stability and quiet operation.
— Articulates in 3 planes 360 degree axial rotation and 50 degrees of total lateral rotation.
— 17-4 investment cast stainless steel housing with rolled threads.
— Polished stainless ball and RTX10 composite cage provides consistent low friction movement.
— Special RTX10 composite cage needs NO lubrication.
— Self cleaning design…movement not affected by ANY water, grit, dirt, or debris.
— Spring loaded closure keeps mechanism tight and rattle free for LIFE!
