Indespension coupling question

I'm in the middle of giving a roller coaster 7 a make over,I was advised to change the threaded bar for the brakes to 10mm.
My question is the part that the threaded bar goes into on the coupling is rusted beyond help and needs to be changed but I don't know the name and is it easy to change...
Any advice would be great

I put one of these bad boys on the end of the threaded bar, which then connected to the actuator under the coupling.

Granted my trailer is so elderly that the guy at Bradley Doublelock (who are pretty much at the end of my road) didn't even believe it was one of their couplings till I showed him the writing.

,,,, and I would recommend using stainless threaded rod for easy maintenance. I could only find 2m lengths on my last build but couplers are fine ( use lock nuts each end )

Stainless steel threaded rod (studding)

A2 Stainless Steel Threaded Rod/Bar/Stud Hexagon Connector M5,6,8,10,12,16,20mm | eBay

A photo would be handy, but I'm guessing it's the Clevis.


+1 for using stainless

3m lengths are available Part Detail - Studding

A4 grade is better if its going to be submerged regularly.
