    My new tires on my 79 K30 (1-ton 4WD) are offset a little more inward than my old ones, and before I realized it I had rubbed the driver side tire on the drag link at the pitman arm, and ripped the boot off the drag link end.

    Advance supposedly does not carry these boots.
    Auto zone said they could order one, but not sure it would fit (and it was a weird thing - the computer said no returns if it was ordered).
    Napa doesn't list it on their website.

    Is it the same boot as a tie-rod end?

    And is the K30 drag link the same as a 1/2-ton?

    Trying to make sure I get the right part, and find out where to get it.

    Thanks!
    Richard

    tie rod boot would work and 1/2 - 1 ton same drag link. go to the junk yard. i work auto and only have found sets like energy suspension sells. no replacements yet for stockers. so i save them when i remove old ones just for this reason.
