Drag link Size

This last weekend i was trying to adjust my drag link and i couldnt find a socket that fits it, does anyone know the correct size for the bolts to adjust the sleeve?

They're 14mm, which is close to 9/16" open end or 6pt socket-

They are 15mm on mine? I do find it strange that a US made vehicle has mostly metric nuts and bolts!

Ill agree with you on that! And yes 15 mm fits perfect.. 14 is to tight for mine and a 9/16 doesnt fit either

I just checked-I have an open end, 14mm wrench, that fits perfect !!

I take a NEW 14mm socket and it won't fit, but the NEW 15mm socket will fit !!

So I took a grinder and ground both "DRAG LINK" nuts down to 14 mm

Just kidding, I'm gonna backup the 15mm claims so far--although I used my (made in China) 14mm open end wrench, to straighten my steering wheel, thats why I was sure (wrong) that it was right--

Kapish ??
