Kingfish999, You are right the RuffStuff inserts that are shown on the links in this post and other posts are for CHEVY, I just called them and they are a 3 degree or 3/4 taper not what is required for the Bronco. Thank you for pointing that out to me and I am glad I called to verify. Looks like I will have to invest in a reemer.

Synergy TRE Adapter from Poly Performance. Sold singularly!

These are the ones I ordered for my flip, as mentioned in this thread Tie Rod Flip-Do it now!

They are the 7/8" drill bit type.

The ones that Thephalanx posted are not the correct size. They are 1.5" per foot not 1.25" per foot. I had emailed the company to find out and they are not the correct ones. Just FYI.

I have also called Bronco Grave Yard to find out the spec for the ones they sell, I am waiting for them to get back to me since they don't know the internal dimensions.

JBG only sells the one and it is the correct. its just a sleeve that's really used just to make smaller tierods fit into bigger hole knuckles. they both use 7* taper

Interesting. I'll have to take a look at mine then. I have so much slop in my steering before I even get to my tierods that I wouldn't even notice. Glad you checked

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the 7 degree reamer equivalent to 1.5" by foot. Making the poly performance adapters compatible



Tapered reamers for proper fitting of ball joints to spindles, tie rod ends to spindles, etc. These have 1/2" shank. The 1-1/2" per foot reamer, also known as a 7° tapered reamer, works with Speedway ball joints 917-20031 K6024, 917-20032 K6136, and 910-34323 K772.

Measures a little less than 1/2" at the small end and 1" at the big end.

tre sleeve

I'm about to do this upgrade in a couple of weeks. I just want to make sure I buy the right sleeve. The one from JBG say they are for 66-77 bronco. I have an 88. Are they the right ones?

yes the JBG sleeves work on stock tierods when doing the flip. basically the bigger tierods and the tie rod flip are 2 completely individual mods that i jsut combined into 1 thread since i did them at the same time. im not sure where else sells them anymore but im sure there around. as far as i know, Ruffstuff no longer makes the correct ones anymore.

Bigger Tie Rods ?

On the previous post it was confirmed that it would work on early 80s Bronco, but if i don't plan to lift it nor flip it, do i still have to ream it to just install them in their normal configuration?

i just bought a 81 for my son to drive to school when he turns 16 in December, so i have a couple months for a major tune up, replace all suspension, steering, new exhaust, etc,etc,. I plan on replacing all tie rods, gearbox, pump, but if i can go in with a littler better/heavier parts i don't mind spending the little extra.

Thanks,
Rob
