I am gonna make some beefy tie rods using Toyota FJ80 ends. Can any of you fab pros tap 23mm x 1.5 right and left hand threads? I hear the taps are expensive and hard to find but that it can be done cheaply on a lathe (or mill?) with the proper feed rates and tooling do-dads and chingaderas.

I thot this was what you were up to from the title. Scott Ellinger at Rockstomper.com is set up to do that. He's in Fort Collins, CO as I recall. If you'd rather just order the tie rods to length he can do that too. If you talk to him, tell him I sent you there.
If you want to do it yourself PM me. I know where to get the tap and you're right, I was quoted something btwn $75 & $125 for the tap a couple of years ago.
