Unhappy help! 7/8 taps needed for steering

I welded up my steering and track bar bungs last night and even after letting them cool overnight 4 are too tight and I need to chase the threads. I guess they are not fool proof. I need to borrow, rent, willing to drive for:

for a 7/8 heim tap

LH 7/8-14 TPI Tap
RH 7/8-14 TPI Tap I should have this in my big tap and die kit at work

Chevy TRE taps

LH 7/8-18 TPI Tap
RH 7/8-18 TPI Tap

I'm going to try and make some diy thread chasers with a pair of old tre's

If anyone has a lead on some I would sure appreciate it. I miss driving my 12 year old hatchback!

Charles 714 two four zero 9913 The closer to Fullerton the better.
