    thats what i thought but it brings this page up,http://autozone.com/servlet/UiBroke...LAR+PARTS+LOOK+UP|~ADJUSTING+SLEEVE+(TIE+ROD).
    then when u scroll down to Related parts it calls for a adjusting sleeve and the tie rod on my truck doesnt have a adjusting sleeve. i think its the one piece design. im goin to try to bend it back tomarrow. anyone got any good tips. I'll try to get some pics up tomarrow too. pretty good stuff. and if anyone up in flag has some fender for mid a 75 lemme know cuz uh, mine are barely hangin on. Im goin to try to weld them back on the brackets.

    you're SUPPOSED to have an adjusting sleeve up there. if you dont, this is prob a good opportunity to pick up a tie rod setup that does.

    hey I used to live in Flag. Went to college there. I used to roll around town in a 74 K5 on 35's with nothing but two front seats and a roll bar. Top was always off in the summer. I miss the hell out of those woods out there. I think I know every inch of back country and huntin trail. I've seen the cinders claim many a truck before. That place is hard on tires too. As for the center bar, I bet you there is one at that junk yard down the street from Big O.

    draglink is the centerlink, tie rods are the things that go from the draglink to the tires on each end.

    i think you are wrong. on a chevy, the tie rod goes from one knuckle to the other, the draglink is the thing that goes from the pitman arm the the drivers knuckle. the tie rod is like ~50" long, while the draglink is only a foot or so.
