So, I ordered the parts I thought I need from the currie correct lync kit. They ended up being to big to fit.

I still need help to figure out if the steering system is a currie or not. I measured the tie rod thickness. My tie rod is 1.25" outer diameter. Is there anything else that I can measure to help fellow jeepforum member help me figure out this steering?

The two pieces that I need are the "end" that connects to the driver side tire and the "end" that connects to the pitman arm. see pictures 2 and 3 below.

Also, I am looking for a pitman arm, but none of the local oriellys, autozone, etc have them. Where did you get your replacement? The alignment shop said that the teeth were ground down.

The teeth were ground down??? Did they take the pitman arm off to verify this? And their splines, if they called them teeth you may want to look for another ft. end man.

That looks just like the Currie Drag link, but the tie rod appears to be different. Isn't there a few other companies making the same steering upgrade? Might be more cost effective to just buy a new kit, either Currie or a crossover kit.

As for the ends, it does look like they left the shipping boots on and either cut them or the wore away?

The tie rod appears to be a Rustys unit.

YEP!!!!

looks just like the one I installed on my Rubicon last night. It that's the case then you can get the replacement end from any parts store. Look on Rusy's web page they give you the part number.

Also, why are you paying for an alignment on a TJ? Do a search here or look at Stu's website. In reality all you can do is Toe in to like 1/8" .. there is really no other adjustments.. DS angle trumps caster (or is it camber)..
