57 Dodge Suburban. The idler arm is bad and the left (I think) tie rod end on the drag link is hit. The end on the drag link is not removable. I don't know if you have to buy a whole drag link or of you send it somewhere and have a new end pressed in. Maybe it can be pressed in at home...again, I don't know. I haven't done any parts searching yet at the parts stores...that's usually a futile gesture. If anyone is aware of a good source for parts and has an answer on the drag link question, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks, Wayne

There are some nos drag links that come up on ebay. Kanter sells the Chinese crap. I think all the new ones are Chinese. There is a rebuild kit out there, moog I think. Inner tie rod ends: same thing, expensive or Chinese junk and you have to buy a pair most of the time. Outer tie rod ends are out there by moog and trw etc. Someone else sells a whole Chinese kit on epay, I wouldn't get it.

Found on FB...

Happy steering makes for a Happy 58 plymouth. Pretty cool bearing conversion made by TRW seems like the hot ticket for a worn out idler bushing. Part number 18564 TRW for anybody that wants to hunt down a kit.

Try Andy Bernbaum (oldmoparts.com). Pretty sure they can help you out, and you can view their catalog online. Another option is to have yours rebuilt. I believe Rare Parts in Stockton, CA, provides that service. They may also have the rebuilt parts in stock.

For my 55 Desoto, they rebuilt my center link and supplied me with inner tie rods, which are both unobtanium. And pleasant to deal with.
