    Can\'t find misc. parts... any help appricated

    I saw a post a while ago about diff vent tubes and finding them... anyone find a place that sells vent tubes? I also need the steering arm studs that hold on the arm and go in the knuckle. I can't find them... called almost all the parts stores... I thought for sure napa would have them, but the kid was retarded... he came saying so you need the ball jt...NO... oh the tierod ends...NO!! WTF? Where is a good parts guy when you need them?

    Somebody on here said that ORD sells the studs and cone washers for the steering arm. You might want to check with Stephen.

    I live right next to the place. I've gone down there and they always know there stuff and always come back with the right part. Ahh, ain't nothing like having a national parts distributor right in your back yard. You'll probably have to call to get a miscellanious part like that.

    As far as your vent tubes you can run down to any parts store or hardware store and pick up a hose at any length and diameter. I think the dia is 3/8 somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    The vent tube is pressed in, you may not be able to get it in there without leakage if you do find one ( I couldn't find one). I took a 2$ brass fitting, and threaded it in the hole (1/8 pipe thread to barb). As far as the steering arm studs, I never tried to find them, but the dealer isn't too bad for price on special hardware... HTH

    Well I'm going there as a last resort... even getting 20% off there is paying too much.... but what else can you do. I suppose could go to a slavage yard for a vent tubr fitting and call arp for the studs and see if they can make up a couple. Also gonna try a place that does lots of rearends and a 4x4/offroad shop and see if they have any ideas.
