Re: Double shear set-up your tierods!!!
Thanks for the pics-- Sorry, I never saw that you had updated them. The washers will certainly give it a better chance of having the heim stay put should it fail. Cheap insurance it is!
To be true double shear, the bolt (in this case) must be support on both sides right at the interface where the bolt enters the heim. Supporting the bolt in this fashion will not allow it to bend; the only way the bolt could fail would be in shear and since it is supported on both sides it makes it "double shear".
