    Ok I'm replacing my whole drag link. Does anyone have an opinion on MFG?
    AutoZone sells Mquey-Norris for like $15-$20 each.
    NAPA sells Dana for like $45 each.
    I havn't checked PepBoys yet. I'm also installing a Rockrod, I ordered it complete from Rockstomper.
    Is there anything I need to be concirned with on these two projects?This is my first Do It Yourself Project on this blazer.
    One last question. Is there a better book than the Haynes? I hate this book it is mostly 2wd and not my year.
    Thanks for all the help.

    Moog is a good brand for chassis components. You could also use Hime(sp?) joints but for this option you would have to drill out the steering arm to get rid of the taper.

    BTW I have the Haynes and it works out good for me. I also have a Chilton that I don't like very much. Sometimes something is covered in one and not the other but if it is in both (and different) I go with the Haynes

    Try a "Parts +" store. I don't think any of the other chains carry Moog. They just carry what is cheepist.
    You could also try to find a factory manual but I hear that they are $$$$$$.

    O'Reilley sells Moog parts and I think they are the best too.

    MOOG is the best... Bar none. These are the cheapest places I've found on the web... each drag link end is about $27.00 AWSOME DEALS on maintance parts... perf parts are jacked up a bit.

    Mquey-norris is owned by dana corp. I used these and they are holding up well.
