Tie Rod Assembly?

Does anyone know if these two are the same part but with the one from quadratec you can replace both tie rod ends instead of the one from oreilly's where you can only replace one tie rod end and the other side is fixed?

Quadratec

Oreilly's Part Number: ds1070

Your gonna have to type the part number in on oreilly's because i can't seem to get the link to work.

Oreilly's
The O'Reilly link didn't work for me but I'm assuming the one from Quadratrac is a tie rod and the one from O'Reilly is a drag link.

Sorry bout the link but i can't get it to work, i edited my post and put the part number so you can type in on oreillys website. I need this part from oreillys because oreillys doesn't sell it anymore they told me. I don't know why still have it on their site but who knows how they think.

They aren't the same. The one at O'Reilly's is a drag link and the one on Quadratec is a tie rod.

Here's a drag link assembly from Quadratec. http://www.quadratec.com/products/56117_01.htm

Which do you need?

For the OEM drag link, one side uses a tie rod end and the other is the link with the end permanently attached. It uses an adjuster sleeve to connect them and adjust the length.

Some heavy duty replacements, like the Big Daddy drag link, use tie rod ends on each end of the heavy duty rod. The rod itself is turned to adjust the length.
