Creeper Joints

Creeper Joints

These heavy duty rod ends are ideal for today's flexible suspension systems. Super strong, Creeper Joints will hold up to years of punishment. The outer shell is a single forged piece. The inner flex ball is made from 8620 tool steel and rides on high quality polyurethane bushings. Heavy-duty, hardened steel washers hold the joint together. Creeper Joints are super flexible and allow for up to 40 degrees of movement when used with spacers. A threaded grease fitting is provided on top for lubrication. The flex ball is drilled for cross lubrication flow from the shell to the link mount bolt. Each joint includes a jam nut!

Three different flex ball sizes; 9/16", 5/8" & 18mm, allow you to choose the right size to match your application. The threaded section is either 1" or 1-1/4" in diameter with 14 or 12 threads per inch respectively.

Creeper Joints are also available in a shackle mount for use with leaf springs. Using a Creeper Joint on the shackle end of a leaf spring reduces spring binding and increases suspension flex. Creeper Joint shackle mounts are sold in pairs and do not include the shackles, bolts, or spring bushings.

Misalignment Spacers

Misalignment Spacers

High misalignment spacers increase misalignment by continuing the spherical diameter of the ball and allowing the edge of the ball to rotate into the body of the rod  end. This allows greater articulation, more suspension travel, and longer life of the rod end.

The inner diameter of the high misalignment spacer is smaller than the inner diameter of the rod end, so a smaller bolt is required. We have listed a conversion chart that will allow you to easily see what size bolt you will need when using our misalignment spacers. Machined from 303 stainless steel.

Misalignment spacers are sold in pairs. Note: Standard misalignment spacers are only used when the width of the ball is too narrow for the bracket it is being used with.

Rod Ends

Rod Ends

Don't be fooled by lookalike rod ends, they are not all the same. Trail-Gear rod ends are the strongest on the market, tested, and proven. The main body of this rod end is 100% 4340 chromoly and then finished with a zinc coating,  the ball is made out of AISI 52100 material and then hard chrome-plated for a tough finish. The liner is made out of a teflon. The best part is that there is no need to pay for jam nuts, because Trail-Gear rod ends come with them.
