    Tie Rod and drag link replacement Empty Tie Rod and drag link replacement

    I've participated in a discussion about building an adjustable drag link here (I think) and I also was commenting on tie-rod replacement on the FB site (which I can't find now)

    So I went through my notes on building my drag link (assembled and good to go) and I did the research to replace the Tie-rod on my g108....

    For the drag link, The ends are Moog es358l and es358r..... I got the 17" threaded tube from Summit and it is an afco part #afc 36187..... For Jam nuts, I went to my local specialty nut and bolt store and got two 5/8"x18 nuts (left and right)

    The tie-rod's ends are Moog es350L and es370R...which also have 5/8x18 shaft threads.... You can get a 40" pre-threaded Chrome-moly tube from Speedway:

    and left and right jam nuts from a nut and bolt source...….


    Hopefully, this will be searchable for the next guy that needs the info....

    Yes, In Silver Lakes! Not many people have heard of it? You must have been here before?

    I've "parsed" the deserts a few times while trucking, but I've never had a reason to stop in Silver Lakes.... Closest I've been is on rt66 between Victorville and Barstow...

    I priced these parts out today because I'm selling some of these pieces that I changed out during the creation of my cross-steer setup and I want to set fair prices....

    Currently, the 17 inch Afco drag-link tube is $21, the rod ends are about $16 each and the jam nuts about $10, so you could build a drag link with new stuff for under $70 (plus shipping)

    The Chromoly Tie rod tube is currently $47 at speedway and the jam nuts are about $10....

    I'm selling the drag link tube with one end (the left threaded one) and two jam nuts for $45 plus shipping....

    I'm also selling my chromoly tie rod tube with two jam nuts and I will include a clamp-on bracket for one end of a stabilizer shock that is a superior copy of the same part I've seen for over $50 by itself ...  $60 for the tube, jam nuts and stabilizer bracket...
    Here is a picture of the replacement bracket I made in the same way, but for the smaller diameter tube of my new tie-rod....
