    Yep, I want to run high steer but only have one hole in the flat top arms. So I wanted to run the draglink into the tierod with that hole.

    Not sure of a GM part # but its just a stock K5 tie rod end.
    The part # is ES2233L

    but you will need to ream out that hole to use it with a TRE. But doing that is going to take out alot of the meat around that area.

    exactly, thanks, are there any drawbacks for this kind of a setup?

    I don't know enough about it to comment, someone else will have to name the pros/cons of this system. It is basically the same as the stock steering on the late 70's 1/2 ton Fords, which seem to work well.
