ZJ tie rod

I am wanting to upgrade my tie rod to the ZJ. I found one on a '98. It is much beefier than the TJ's, but it has these extra bends. I don't think it will cause any problems. Is this the right one I'm looking at? Anyone have any input?

From what I've seen, the ZJ tie rod does have those bends.

Great upgrade I recently did it on my jeep and that looks right, I ended up just buying a new one though

Is the drag link the same on the ZJ? Or is it heavier too? It looked the same to me.

Not sure if you have seen this or not, but give it a read.

That looks correct. The drag link is exactly the same so don't waste your time or money on it.
