"SA" rod ends are "male" type rod ends. These rod ends have a threaded shank and can be sealed or unsealed, with or without maintenance. They are manufactured from C45 steel to DIN 648 series E standards.
"SA" type rod ends have right-hand threads. Left-hand threads are available under reference "SAL".
There are two main differences between "SA" and "TSM" rod ends:
The combination of sliding surfaces is steel/steel or steel-on-bronze synthesized with PTFE, depending on the type of "SA" rod end, whereas it is steel/bronze or steel/PTFE, depending on the type of "TSM" rod end.
In terms of dimensions, "SA" tips have a larger external head diameter than "TSM" tips, but are thinner.
