  1. well, the steering pitman arm will be reused, but the center tube or drag link (what ever you want to call it) will be replaced with a new bar and ball joint and guts for $323.18
  2. I have taken apart the whole drag link (connection from steering arm to passenger side wheel) everything looks good, not to worn out, I do need to replace the ball joint on the passenger side due to the threads on the ball joint being bad. but for the most part, the ball on the drivers steering pitman arm looks good, the seats in the tube look good, I just need new rubber grommet on the steering arm and new ball joint on passenger side unless I can re-thread it. also, the holes in tube look like they should either be replaced or repaired which a $300 new pipe vs repair.
  3. YEAH, spoke to rareparts.com today, they have everything I need. current price is about $323.18 for drag link, $360 for front steering arm with ball joints. fooking expensive. total's about $680.00 before shipping.
  4. UPDATE: TERMINOLOGY HELPED. I called THEN and NOW and Tom told me he can get me all the new BALL JOINTS and parts I need to rebuild my drag link ball joints. I will be taking off the steering linkage to see how bad the tube key hole's are. how did you braze/weld and fix the key holes in above pictures?
  5. DRAG LINK BALL JOINT, I NEED TO FIND NEW DRAG LINK BALL JOINTS FOR BOTH SIDES OF THE STEERING.
  6. The end parts that have threads and press into the steering arm or backing plate. The ball joints, I want to replace mine and currently am working on getting the (Drag link) or (part that connects the steering box to the passenger wheel) replaced
  7. Where did you source the end ball joints that go in the control arm (backing plate) I cant seem to find the ball joints to replace each steering arm.

    WHEEL CAP RESTORATION

    yeah, I was searching for the question on the forums. the edges of mine are either cracking or some areas are falling off. I am concerned that a few are bad enough that need to be replaced around the edges. i wonder if this is something someone can repair or should I just source new re manufactured ones. like on this 34

    WHEEL CAP RESTORATION

    Does anyone know someone who can repair old beat up hubcap's? mine are pretty good, but the edges are rough and the sheet metal cover that goes over the hard metal cap that pop's into the wheel need some repairs.
