ok, so i have figured out how i am proceeding with this.....
the IRO track bar is 1.25" OD solid tube
I am going to cut the threaded portion off of the track bar
get 1' of either 1.75"x.250 wall DOM ($12.60) or 1' of 1.5"x.120 wall DOM ($6.50)
The ID of both of those is 1.25" so it will sleeve over the IRO bar
Weld the exposed sleeve in all the way around to the IRO bar and maybe some drill the outer sleeve for a few small plug welds
Then get The 7/8" tube bung for 1.25" ID and weld that to the DOM sleeve($10)
Then get a 7/8" by 7/8" Heim, misalignments, and jam nut to finish it
I priced all of this using the .250 wall DOM from Ruffstuff and all in before shipping it is 49$ which isn't much more than the cost of a johnny joint alone (Heim,misalignment,jamnut,weld in bung,and DOM sleeve)
a 7/8" heim should be plenty sufficient for the track bar, particularily the RUFFSTUFF heims which are know as some of the best (if not the best) out there
Hope THis helps, I have less than 5k miles on my IRO bar and there is 3/8" of play in the frame bushing and it is not visibly damaged. This is not acceptable in my opinion for a track bar and leads to sloppy handling for sure
