Tired of those worn out tie rods? Converting to fast ratio steering arms or longer lower control arms? We've made these MX chassis Heim tie rod adapters to fit into the stock taper found on the steering knuckles and thread directly onto the inner tie rods. They can be used with stock steering components or aftermarket arms that fit the stock taper tie rod mount. We've made heim adapters to allow for up to approximately 15mm of drop on the pivot point for the tie rod giving a reduction in bump steer above that of just running RCA's.

These must be run on lowered cars of approximately 2" to 3" drop, the angle found on stock height cars will cause a bind in heim joint and cause damage or failure of parts.

Sold in pairs, Inner tie rods and steering arms not included.


Price: $ 160.00 / 1 Pair
Product code: T-MX-HTRA

In Stock & Ready to Ship

So, will they bind if you just jack the car up, and the struts fully extend ?

No binding issues with coilovers, no one around us has stock suspension so we can't test out how much "droop" the factory suspension extends to.

My only issue with these is they're not drilled all the way through but then again, nobody else is running LS400 inner tie rods.

I drilled it all the way through myself. Nothing a few minutes of my life wasn't going to fix.

So by running these you don't need the tie rod spacers then? if using the xm steering arms?

If you use XM knuckles you will need these or the original tie-rod spacers. They are basically the same part but this kit gets rid of the need to run OEM outers plus the original spacer, and the heim version is rebuild-able

Yeah. Im just thinking of my ideal setup.


It looks like i all i will need is the Heim outer Tie-rod adapter and the Steering knuckles and i should be good to go.

Since i already have a NRCA.

Then i should be good for maximum angle, correct?

Yes, until we come out with our FLCA later this year. If you are hitting your tension rod with your trailing wheel at full lock then I suggest XM tension rods. If you are not hitting they are not really needed unless you want to adjust caster. You just might be able to clear with NCRCA's but that's depends on rim width.

My leading's wheel tie rod hits the Lower Control arm. that is what stops my angle. I don't know how much more the rack can go, but that is where it stops as of now.

Well the main benefit of XM knuckles is the trailing wheels angle compared to stock due to the less ackerman and slightly shorter knuckle. Instead of having a scrubbing trailing tire it becomes close to parallel with the lead wheel so you can maintain full throttle and max angle.

Just wondering if these will work with your new FLCA at full extension. with what tie rods.

They will work up to 1 1/4" extended with factory X8 inners, we are making longer ones for people who want to extend the FLCA's beyond that but do not want to return to stock length.
