i spent $6 at the local metal suppy shop for 34" of 7/8 6061 aluminum solid stock. Then cut them to length and rigged them up in my drill press. Drilled 1/2" holes 1.75" deep in each end then threaded them to 14mm 1.5 pitch. Next i put some flat spots on them for a wrench and installed them with 1/8" toe in. Very easy and cheap thing to do.

Well at least we sort of understand what the markup is for these tie rod bars. Kudos to Mega. Youre not an a$$hole all the time. :)

Looking like a regular machinest. I bought some solid stock from Speedy Metal on the web. I think it was $4 for 18"

Just don't break or bend them . Use a little common sense and place your tires correctly when going over obstacles. Placing your front tires on the obstacle is better than cranking the wheel around it. Tie rods bend when you have the tire turned and weight from the machine transfered to that corner.
Remember that statement? Why would you waste your time on building tie rods, when you're are perfectly fine!
