tie rod ends

I'm ordering a crap load of parts from rock auto including all 4 tie rod ends...to avoid ordering duplicates (and the wrong parts), what are each of the rod ends called? The names confuse me. So far I have:

Lower Right Outer
Left Outer
Front Left Inner (AT PITMAN ARM)
Front Right Outer

Seems like those names should get you the right parts. But they could have them listed as tie rod ends and drag link ends. Two for the tie rod, two for the drag link. I replaced mine last spring but ordered them from Kolak.

I've got a ZJ so only need 3 -- BlackShuck, ballpark how much from Kolak? I know you have a WJ but I'm looking and would rather buy from him. Thanks.

Perfectcircle, that's the way I understand they're called.

PCircle...you are on the right track. Those are the correct names to them, they are all tie rod ends.
Lower Right Outer --> Passenger TRE at knuckle
Left Outer --> Drivers TRE ad Knuckle
Front Left Inner (AT PITMAN ARM) --> Drag link TRE at Pitman arms
Front Right Outer --> Passenger Draglink TRE at knucle

All as viewed from inside the vehicle looking out...I would get MOOG or Raybestos for TRE's.

You're the man. Thanks for the help. I didn't want to order two of the same rod ends just because they had different names. I would have been very upset come install day! Two of them are raybestos and two are some other weird name that were prolly put together by some 8 year olds being whipped in a sweat shop in mexico but someone has to make their beatings worth while! In all seriousness, they just have to work. I'm planning on ripping the axles out anyways (IF things go as planned which i'm crossing my fingers for) Thanks again

I thought I had kept the receipt but couldn't find it when I looked for it. I don't remember exactly the price but he was competitive with online store prices.
And he seemed to feel that the ones he sold were a better buy. (Of course)

you have 4, one of them is the majority of the draglink and still goes bad like the others.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
