Just a few quick questions...

So I recently damaged my steering and got DW, but I fixed it. Noticed it didn't feel like it used to tho, so I searched around, asked a few questions, and found that my track bar is loose on the passenger side. Anyone have an idea of how much that cost? Also the tie rod and tie rod end were bent. The end was replaced but not the rod it's self. I noticed how week it was, and was wondering who makes a good, relatively cheap, tie rod?

Here is a pic of the bend, it's near the TRE. The bends to small to see it very well though

A really good and cheap upgrade is a tie rod out of a V8 ZJ. It bolts right into place of the stock one, is thicker, is solid instead of hollow, and you can pick it up at NAPA.

Yes... the ZJ style is much bigger, but the taper is the same to go into the draglink

Yep about $140 from NAPA out the door. Much cheaper than others for a pretty beefy upgrade.
