05-30-2007, 06:10 PM
not sure if this is the right name for the tool, im going to switch my tierods to the top of my knuckles instead of on the bottom, a guy started on them and only got one done before taking off so i only need one reamed out,anybody have the tool to do this or know where i could get it done?

i used a place on river road down by the ferry.. forget the name....
Probably Haney Metal Works... or something of that nature. Just down the road from Gary's Autowrecking.
snap on reamer is about $30
r-121 or something like that rings a bell
I did my steering arm no problem but decided to put the reamer in a drill for the pitman and fawked it up
owned it for about 15minutes before ruining it

is that for a ford tierod or do they all use the same reamer
the angle is pretty much standard 1.5" per foot or someothing like that
the only difference is how deep you ream it

you want a 7 degree tapered reamer

I don't mean to be picky but 7 degrees is incorrect - it is 1.5" per foot which is 7.13 deg per side.
