Our tractors have been fitted with all heim style tie rods... so far they appear to be way sturdier than stock.

Spherical rod ends (Heim or Rose joints) are THE way to go- not just for strength, but stability- no slop. However- 1" tube is WAAAY overkill. All that's gonna do is provide clearance nightmares. Either use solid round bar stock in the 3/8"-1/2" range, or a heavy wall tube in the 1/8"-3/4" range. If you can get it, gas pipe (either 1/4" or 3/8" Sch40) is a good sturdy choice.

That's odd. We have Tractor Supply, and they have them here... Did you check the hydraulics section?

Also, any GOOD fastener store will have them.
