Is it possible to take off your old one and count? Maybe go to advance auto and just buy the tie-rod ends and count (then you can always return them). Once you find the part number I like to know. I am also going to flip the tie-rod and move it up top.

5/8"x18 tpi.

Be careful with what quality you go with, the cheap crap will get you hurt.
High quality TFE lined rod ends aren't cheap, for the money I would go with the high end Moog suspension parts and be done with it, if you break those you will certainly break rod ends at twice the price.
If you insist on rod ends I would recommend Aurora brand, look for "mil-spec" or "Aero-spec" surplus and nothing else.

This is wrong. I made my own stainless steel tie rods for stock tie rod ends and they are 11/16-18 thread. this is an uncommon size, I don't think they make rod ends in this size. However you can have your Big daddy tie rods remachined to 3/4 - 16 which is a standard size and use rod ends with a 5/8's hole and 3/4 -16 threads.
