    Cain't Remember Stuff (my daughters looking over my shoulder so 'stuff' will do)

    I've been told you have to change a bunch of 'stuff' for the 80 TRE swap, and tapped out right now with R&P's and custom fuel cells.

    Im just a n00b to LC's, but instead of tie rod ends, what would replacing them with sperhical rod bushings do? You could buy blanks, and drill and tap to fit your linkage... The only pic i know of is the ones for my stang, so this is what they look like, but not specific. http://www.partshopper.com/shop/Steeda-Bump-Steer-Kit-79-04-Mustang-m139.html
    I know they helped my steering, but i haven't checked to see what they may do in offroad platforms.

    get that new axle on and switch to 60 TRE's, 80's fit but they won't work right for the drag link.

    www.budbuilt.com can build new linkage for you that's quite stout
