Anyone know a good place to get this stuff? I am running the 7/8" tapped drag link and tie rod. I need right and left ends and one with the hole for the stabilizer to retap for the drag link and I need a short draglink end if that makes any sence. Anyway just askin for a good place to get the parts and if possible part numbers <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

thanks, I'll take what I have to the parts store and make sure that is what I want - guess that is the norm?

I borrowed the steering from someone and it works perfect so I just need to get replacement ends and get the rods tapped

I dont have the part #'s on me, but thats what I bought at the store when I did mine a few weeks back (I think? .. no Im pretty sure) if its not 81 its a few years later, like 85 or something.

I am using the following....

Tie Rod:
ES2233L for pass side (reamed hole for TRE)
ES2234R for driver side

Drag Link:
ES2027L for pitman arm (high angle)
ES2234R for pass side (mounts to TRE ES2233L)

I order my parts from carparts.com or partsamerica.com when they have coupons.

Sounds like Eric has the #'s right. I have some vehicle apps on my 44 swap page. Basically '85 Blazer.

I bought all my ends at Autozone w/ lifetime waranty. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> I think they're all around $25/ea. That Dodge one I used is more though.

Well here's a question.

Maybe everybody and his dog already knew this, but I found out today the hard way that the R and L in the part numbers does not (at least not always) refer to the "hand" of the thread, but to the side of the vehicle the part was on.

As it turns out, the ES375R and L I am using - the R is on the right side and has the LEFT hand threads, and vice versa.

So question is, is it convention to use the ends on the side of the vehicle opposite from the "hand" of the threads. i.e will a xxxxL (almost) always be from the left side and have RIGHt hand threads???

Anyone?

Brandon....

My numbers were for my setup with the drag link that mounts into the tie rod. ErikB is probably using two mounting holes on the steering arm to mount the tie rod and drag link. This is why he is using different numbers than I am.

Application was 85 Chevy K10 PU.

One more thing.....

ES2233L and ES2234R come with jam nuts. If they don't, they should.

hey your drag link end is on the wrong end <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

$108.46 for all of it at kragen.com
not bad but mcQuay Norris

$158.01 at carparts but Moog

I'll see what autozone can do when I go there..

Is that solid stock? I am having someone tap mine but after the fact and paying out my arse just wondering if I could have done it with hand tools..

How about that reamer - any specs/cost on that?

thanks!

Yeah, but it worked for me anyway <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> it's 1.25" .219 DOM dude, I borrowed a set of taps and did it myself with just a tap handle. .219 is pretty much the perfect size.
