I bought these

Tapered Replacement Sway Bar Bolt by JKS™ and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware

I still have my old ones, you can have them for the price of shipping. PM me if interested.

They are the same as YJ, or waggie's, got 1 at the pic a part for $1.00, I think the threads are 1/2-20. Lock nut, with the crimped top not nylon, Should be able to get at most hardware stores. (They used be called a Stover Nut). You can try to chase the treads on the old one.

I was able to get help with parts via sherlocktk...THANKS!
I got the parts back on very quickly but cant find torque specs on the nuts in either the Chiltons or FSM.
Anyone have those specs?

I would just do it till its tight. Prob doesn't have to be super tight... If you have a lock nut then it shouldn't back off.

Tie Rod ends are set for 40 ft lbs, and I believe these are the same diameter for the nuts (I could be wrong) When I had them on mine, I did not worry about toruque and put them as tight as I could with my standard (8 inch maybe) 3/8 ratchet.
