    That's what I was thinking of doing as well. Can't see why it wouldn't work, it works well for the steering going across for the wheels.

    Same here. Ordered two Moog tie rod ends and threaded sleeve. There's a thread here if you search that gives part numbers on the tie rod ends. I got them from rockauto for about a third of what was originally posted. And the sleeve was something like $20 from summit

    Its all here

    https://shop.rareparts.com/search?ye...&model=G10-VAN

    Drag link, tie rod ends, king pins, spring bushings.

    I can tell you from experience that after you replace the drag link youll think your driving a new van!
