Suspension Joints Explained

Collection: Suspension Joints

Barnes 4WD line of rod ends and hardware includes:
  • Enduro Joints that are expertly engineered using heat and cryogenic treatment. Our fabrication process makes these joints rebuildable, greaseable, and unusually durable.
  • Heat Treated Chromoly Heim Joints are stronger and longer lasting than non-treated heims. Our heim joint rod ends are available in a variety of sizes: 3/8”, 5/8”, 1/2”, 3/4”, 7/8”, and 1 1/4”.
  • Threaded Tube Inserts create ultimate strength by better containing the shank of the heim or enduro joint. Barnes’ tube inserts are also available in left- and right-hand threading.
  • High Misalignment Spacers are specially designed to give you greater misalignment than a rod end can do alone.
  • Jam Nuts secure the orientation of your joints. Barnes stocks six different sizes, 3/8”, 5/8”, 1/2”, 3/4”, 7/8”, and 1 1/4”, so you can get the perfect fit.
  • Misalignment Spacers keep your suspension from binding and enhance range of motion.
  • Safety Washers protect the heim joint from failure and also offer some additional misalignment. We offer washers in 3/4” and 5/8”.
