And the saga continues. The replacement Left Tie Rod End appeared via UPS today. And it was a party. Until I compared it to the original piece: Pardon the crappy contrast in the photo. The new one is on the left, the original one is on the right. As the jury can plainly see, these are chiral opposites to each other. The new piece has a left hand bend at the top, whereas the one I need has a right hand bend. In other words, this new piece goes back to the shop and I am left, again, with no idea where I can buy a new tie rod end. Anybody know of a secret storehouse of obsolete parts for oddball jeeps that has been forgotten about?
