If you have a race truck or a vehicle you enjoy taking off-roading often, then you need reliable heim joints to ensure adequate steering capabilities. You often find these joints in the steering system as well as throttle linkages and suspension links. Obtain the right off-road heim joints for your truck to pass inspections and remain safe while driving.
Times to Upgrade to Aftermarket Joints
There are a variety of these joints available, and the best time to look into them is when you plan on making significant alterations to your Jeep or truck. For example, if you add larger tires or replace the axles to your truck, then you are going to need different joints than the standard factory ones to maintain adequate steering. Additionally, you should look into 7/8 heim joints when your axles or transmission break down.
Differences Between Tie Rod Ends and Heim Joints
While both of these components serve similar functions, there are some key differences to keep in mind as you are shopping. First, tie rod ends are tapered. They typically need to be fastened with cotter pins and castle nuts. As such, they retain a strong connection and provide sufficient safety. Heim joints are sometimes referred to as spherical rod ends. The main difference is that these joints need to be attached to steering linkages while tie rod ends require a taper. If you are out on an open trail and need to swap out a joint in a pinch, then you have the best luck with heim joints.

You never want any of the chief systems in your off-roading machine to go down while you're on the move, but the last thing you want to encounter issues with is your steering. If your engine overheats or your transmission goes out, you can always steer to the side of the road – but not without operational steering systems. Prevent the road from damaging this crucial piece of your truck, Jeep or SUV by replacing your old tie rods with a heavy-duty heim joint.
A Heavy-Duty Steering Solution
The most noteworthy thing about 1.5 heim joint (also known as a hyme joint), is that it tends to be much, much bigger than your average tie rod – even the 1 ton tie rods. This makes them incredibly sturdy in practically any situation. In fact, these components are commonly used on buggies and off-road racing trucks that need to handle some considerable terrain at top speeds. If it can handle these challenges day in and day out, this joint can certainly handle your average off-roading needs. They tend to be a bit more expensive than tie rods, but create a much safer, more reliable driving experience overall.
Of course, heim joint kits can be used for much more than just steering. The joint itself is also known as a “spherical rod end” and serves a great multitude of purposes in the average off-road machine. The joint is a general construction part, and can also be found in suspension links, throttle linkages and practically any other part of your ride that requires the ability to pivot to work properly.
