Alternative Thicker Track Rod/Drumstick


ST185 Carlos Sainz Steering Rack related question but I thought I'd ask everyone as possible answer might not necessarily be from 5th gen car. 

The Power Steering Rack in question.....IMG_1706.JPG.5d352a2f9b2c5296579d3042461c598e.JPG

Existing track rod/drumstick....



Max. Diameter 15.12mm (inside boot)


Outside boot 13.79mm


The question is.... Is there an alternative thicker track rod/drum stick of a minimum diameter of 16mm or larger from another model/gen. of Celica or Toyota for that matter, that will fit in its place ? i.e. Thicker shaft but swivel ball the same size but length not important.  Don't want to sleeve existing rod, weld it etc. etc., or reduce thread diameter, just want to cut it and thread it (M16x1.5) and fit a modified track rod....like this....IMG_1705.thumb.JPG.82fa6da6c30411ef360c462fe8f85218.JPG

Maybe there's a later rack that would do the job or provide bits. Anybody know if such an item exists ?
