Does anyone know what tie rod material is made of. Not the cast end piece but the rod itself? I just redid the front end on my truck and have few old pieces. seems hard enough. Not sure how to treat. Any info is appreciated.

I was told it can be 5160, 9260, 6150, or 1045/1050H. So, good tough medium-carbon steel. You'll have to do test quenches to see if it likes your oil or if it's 1045 and lkes water.
