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.


For some, it is easier to kill the light inside of themselves than it is to fight the darkness all around them.

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.
