    Garreth, go buy yourself a couple of 2007 4x4 Ford Ranger tie rods, at Ford. Dirt cheap (vs GM) Identical threads, just shorter, thus sturdier.

    Then you'll need a 14mm threaded sleeve, and the threaded part of a 14mm capscrew. I've got a pic of the assembly somewhere. I'll see if I can find it.

    That sleeve is 22mm dia, 50mm long. Inside threaded straight through 14mm std. metric. Just about any metal will do. If you want an overkill that will outlast 100 Isuzus, Bohler v155, no heat treatment required.

    The stud is 25-30mm 14mm std thread, cut from a 14mm 12.9 grade capscrew. This you can green Loctite halfway into the sleeve (12-15mm to protrude for locking into the rod end.

    The rest is normal assembly and wheel alignment adjustment.

    In nood is daar baie planne, , net bietjie van 'n blikskottel om die wheel alignment te skat.

    R145.....not bad for an OEM part that is off the shelf, and quick and easy to replace.

    Get that Frontier sorted!!!
