Long story, but would like to hear if anyone has used a stock tie rod from a 78/9 Bronco or F150 on an EB. Big question is, did the odd angle of the drag link attachment point cause any issues with the pitman arm in the standard orientation.

The setup is '73 EB with stock PS gear, FW front with cut & relocated C's at standard EB width. 4.5" lift.

dont see why you cant with full width axles just make sure drag link and track bar angles are close

or you could drill out and go with rod ends and DOM tube links like i did

Thanks for the reply. I am fairly well aware of all the options out there, just not this combo. Considering the parts I have on hand, it would be great if the F150/Bronco tie rod could be used. The only thing I am not sure about is how to deal with the odd angle where the drag link comes off the right side tie rod.
