    You either make one or have one made.

    the stock Tie rod is too long to work with most hy steer systems.

    So cut yours off, tap it out, & cut a new slot. Maybe Marlin will tell you how long it needs to be.

    or just upgrade it now and not worry about another week link in the steering..

    You already got the Hysteer arms, do some FJ80 TRE or 1ton Chevy stuff.. your looking at about $200 in parts for TRE's and Threaded Tubing
