    Yes, I have made two different drag links for my Chevy 108 using Moog tie-rod ends and a threaded sleeve.....
    I have posted a thread with part numbers for GM applications.....
    Dodge most likely uses different ends......
    Most American tie-rod ends use the same taper (7 degrees) but you will need to know the diameter at both ends of the hole and the thickness of the arms that the taper goes through to find a suitable tie-rod end size.....Once you have ends picked out you will need to order the correct sleeve and lock nuts....
