    Part # for D60 TRE\'s

    Building high steer tie rod and drag link. I've seen the style that screw in each end of a tube and not with one short side and one long. what tie rod ends should i use? Thanks for the help in advance.

    ES2026 is what you want for all four ends, it is a high angle drag link end and what I used for my hi-steer, the 2026 is the one on top compared to a GM tierod end.

    why? the 2027 is the mate to that joint with left thread so it is much easier to align.
    also, why would you need high angle on a tie rod that sees no angle?

    Less chance of movement with contact to rocks plus you only have to cary on spare TRE since all four are the same. You need the hi angle on the tierod to clear the springs (they sit up higher).
