Rod end bearings, also called heim joints or spherical rod ends, are articulating joints that are attached to the ends of tie rods, steering links, and cylinders to provide a transfer of motion and force between two points. They consist of a spherical swivel with a cylindrical bore through which a bolt may pass pressed into a housing that has a threaded shank. Rod end bearings are used in applications such as steering linkages, agricultural machinery, and textile manufacturing equipment, among others
