This is what I found. I am doing this within the next week or two myself, but I don't see enough parts here I don't think. There's the inner and two outers plus the sleeve. I was told the draglink was the same for both the ZJ and the TJ. I am curious how that gets a beefier end on the passenger side wheel.

The drag link isn't as much of a liability as the small diameter tie rod bending. Changing the drag link isn't an upgrade. Just get the inner/outer and sleeve.
