Tie rod for HP Dana 60

I am looking for a new tie rod that I can remove and change both ends. I found a couple places online but they are saying because their tie rods a bigger around they hit the diff cover on the Fords, I guess its not such a big problem on the Chevys. Does anyone know of a good tie rod that has both ends removable that will clear the diff cover?

I put two washers under the steering stop on one side. That fixed the diff cover clearance problem.

i built a tie rod from 1.25" dia tubing and used the chev ends. i have it mounted on top of the steering arms (not high steer) and it doesn't hit the cover- even with a .25" thick rock ring welded to the cover.
