Default Are clevis and rod ends realy safe?

I hope everyone is doing fine!
I started to build my rear radius rods ordered my clevis and three piece rod ends. I recieved them yesterday and to tell you the truth I am a little leary of using them they dont look very stout. I am looking at the possibilty of using four bar ends in lew of clevis and tie rod end in lew of rod end. I will use two rear radius rod brackets and sandwhich the bar ends in between them so as not to side load them and for the tie rod bracket I will taper the holes 7 degrees to except the stud. I will do the same for the frount. I must admit that it will not look as clean but i feel it will be a lot safer. ARE MY CONCERNS REAL OR HAVE I JUMPED OF THE DEEP END AGAIN!!
