  • Parts are designed & manufactured to SAE J1120 specifications.
  • ASPF, ACF, ACF-T & AMAX-T - Spherical ball is made from 52100 bearing steel, precision ground, surface hardened for wear resistance and hard chrome plated for corrosion resistance.
  • Body is made from 1045 steel and .0003 minimum zinc plated for corrosion resistance. ASPF features an additional Yellow Dichromate supplemental coating.
  • SSF-T - Spherical ball is made from 440C stainless Stainless Steel, precision ground and surface hardened. Body is made of 300 series Stainless Steel.
Left-hand threads are available in all sizes. Left-hand units are marked for easy user identification. (Add suffix "L" to the part number. i.e. ASPFL4).

THE FEMALE SERIES ASPF SPHERICAL ROD ENDS features high-strength injection molded self lubricating nylon raceway design.
