Drag link/tie rod ball joints

Post by DH70 » 15 Nov 2016 10:16

I need to replace the drag links removable ball joint and tried to fit TR5677 (tie rod ends), but they're too long. Anyone have a part number for the drag link ball joint? Luckily the fixed ball joint is still ok. I've added pics, but can only load a link on Flickr.
