so i got rods, knuckle arms and steering box plates from a friend, build by mike in matsqui prayrie, but i gotta buy my own tie rod ends. so the question is if anybody knows, will the fj80 rod ends work or are they different and if so does anybody else have high steer build by him and what would be the part # for the ends if you do. oh ya the inside of the rods measure just over 21 mills

Some companies use toy FJ80 ends, and some use ford F150 ends. what taper are the knuckle arms built for????????????? or what brand are the outer knuckle ends, What part did "Mike" build for you, Depending on, he could tell you what to use. Are they OTT, Marlin, Trail Gear, All Pro????
PS....Lordco stocks lots of parts

PPS. If you go to Lordco, they carry Moog steering parts, if you have OTT they use F150 ends which are part #ES150R and ES150L (left and right hand thread) if you have marlin or all pro they use FJ80, you'll have to look up the part #'s

the arms are from sky manufacturing and are built to accept 1 ton tre's either chev or ford.

i don't know what the arms are and i don't know how to get a hold of mike so i guess i'll go measure the taper and try to figure it out

the knuckle arms are none of those manufacturers he had machined them himself and cut the rods, the taper goes from 5/8" to just over 1/2" actually 17/32" over a 3/4" span. so i would think it would be a 1/8" taper over 3/4"
