    I just got done putting new tie rod ends and a new drag link on my 86. Man, I knew the old ones were worn, but now my steeing wheel is straight and the feel of the wheel on the road is awesome.

    This whole time, I thought all the slop in the wheel was in the steering box. Best $60.00 I have spent in a long time.

    How to replace Tie rod End and drag link

    Any one have a good write-up on changing the tie rods ends and Drag? My '89 needs it and I would like to try it myself.

    If you're replacing everything, it's super easy. Just measure the length of the parts that are on the truck, assumble the new parts to the same length and then swap them out. You'll only need some basic hand tools (air impact works best) and a BFH. Beat the old parts out, slide the new parts in and get your alignment checked!
