DS1218 Details

Drag Link Dimensions

  • Length Center to Center is measured from the center of one drag link end to the center of the other end. On a curved drag link, the measurement does not follow the curve.
  • Shaft Diameter is measured as the outside diameter of the connecting shaft between the two drag link ends.
  • The Taper Minor and Major Diameters are measured on the tapered shaft of the drag link ends. The Minor diameter is the smallest area of the taper, and the Major diameter is the largest area of the taper. If the Drag link has ends that are not identical these Minor and Major tapers will be listed twice, once for each end.
  • The Taper length is measured between the Major and Minor taper diameters. This will be listed twice if the ends are different.
  • The Taper Pin Thread is the size of the threads at the top of the taper. This will accept a locking nut that secures the drag link end to the vehicle. This will also be listed twice on drag links with ends that are not identical.

Customer Q&A - Multiple Heavy Duty Manufacturers DS1218

This drag link appears to be the one for our Newmar Motorhome. It has a freightliner chassis. The dimensions and description are the same. Can you confirm this?

This DS1218 may be the correct replacement drag link but we are unable to confirm fit using the vehicle application. If the length is correct you will also need to remove the current drag link and measure the taper on the ends with a set of calipers, this measurement will ensure that the ends will seat correctly when it is installed. Also, take note of the clocking of this drag link as the ends are at 12 o'clock and 3o'clock. On this DS1218 drag link both ends use the same taper with the large end (major taper) measuring 1.10" diameter and the small end (minor taper) measuring at 0.965" diameter. Both ends are threaded for a 7/8" -14 Nut.
