With the front end halfway rebuilt, I decided to splurge and replace the steering linkage for $110.85, and the ball joints for another $67.80. According to J.C. Whitney's Web site, there are two different types of tie-rod ends: '80-'85 and '86-'94. My guess is the later parts have bigger ends that might be an upgrade for the early 1/2-ton Fords. I'd probably have to get the knuckles reamed out to use them, but maybe I could just swap to the later-model knuckles? I'll look into it and let you know.
Budget Left: $652.35
