I'm talking about the rod ends, eye bolts that are holding the male side of the socket block.

It says tsfx5 on them.

I don't know anything about the sources, but I just googled TSFX 5 and got results for 5/16" rod ends. Looks like that's the part number.

You can get them at race shops or bearing stores but honestly I'd just get them from Jack. why are you looking for them? Spec wise the average Max load for a 5/16" Heim or Rod end (Not eyebolts those are totally different) is ~26,000 lbs/in^2 (8,125lbs actual load)

Product Overview

Suitable for many heavy load, high precision motion control applications, the Tuthill TSMX/TSFX Series brings an upgrade of heavy duty performance to a precision 3-piece metal to metal rod end design (housing uses a heat treated alloy material instead of standard steels used in other 2- and 3-piece designs). The ball is produced from bearing quality steel that is thru hardened and finish ground, adding to its precision fit and increased wear performance. The body and raceway are machined from heat treated alloy steel and are zinc plated for extended corrosion resistance. Its clear chromate finish is suited for high visibility exposed surfaces requiring "aesthetically pleasing" bright metal surfaces. Studded and right or left-handed thread versions are available. Grease fittings are optionally available.
