The QA1 Endura Racing Series Rod End is a loaded slot style of rod end that was introduced in the U.S. by QA1 in 1995. The body is machined with a significant groove going all the way around the interior of the body. The ball is then inserted into the machined slot, and a PTFE®/Kevlar® material is injected. Serving as a liner to keep dirt and debris out, while also lubricating the rod end. In addition to providing added strength, the injection molded race also won't "pound out" like traditional PTFE (PTFE®) liners, increasing the longevity of your rod ends!
