AFAIK there are 3 Tie rod ends, one on the track bar and 2 on the steering rod. I may be mistaken but...Tj

Correct.

I'd be careful with that package. Ball joints are something you don't wanna go cheap on. Go Moog, go Spicer, or go home.

Actually you have 4 tie rod ends. The drag link has 2 and the tie rod has 2. Although the draglink ha a long piece and a short piece they are both considered rod ends. The trackbar in it's stock form does not have per say a rod end it's a solid piece.
