As the name implies, these parts make your spherical rod end installation safer. These parts perform two critical functions: First, if the rod end were to fail the end would not be able to slip over the retainer bolt. Second, the tapered profile allows the spherical to travel through an extended range without the limitation posed by a simple flat washer. These parts come in sizes that can be used in small linkages and up to large suspension assemblies. The washers are offered in 6061 Aluminum, 303 Stainless and 4130 Alloy Steel.
