    I tried calling Trevor, but he is not in yet. I was wondering if anyone knows the size by chance off hand?

    The web site says the draglink end is larger than the tie rod end. I need the threads to be 7/8" to fit my draglink and the taper shank of the ball joint to be a step bigger. When the standard end is in the shank goes all the way through the hole to where the ball joint would bever be a able to be tightened.

    order up a drag link end for a 3/4 ton, rather than a tie-rod end, and you'll have the right part.

    Draglink ends are different for crossover steering from what I have found. A standard draglink end will definitely not work in this application.
