    What tie rod ends did you use? I would just get the ones that ORD sells, but $110.00 seems a little steep for two. I want to get them on my own to save a little money.

    It depends on whether or not you want to use TRE (Tie Rod Ends), or DLE (Drag Link Ends). The DLE's are beefier and have a greater range of motion, which is why I run those.

    DLE Part Numbers
    ES2027L
    ES2026R

    TRE Part Numbers
    ES2010L
    ES2234R

    I just bought a new set of the bigger DLE's at Autozone for ES2027L - 17.99 and ES2026R - 21.99

    The smaller TRE's are more expensive..
    ES2010L - 47.99 and ES2234R - 24.99


    Hope this helps...

    What company are those TRE numbers for? Are these part numbers for the 7/8" or 1" threaded TREs?
