    Unfortunately, on the P38A, only one end of the track rod/drag link can be replaced. The other end is crimped in.

    I bought a universal pair which I am hoping to fit soon

    ENERGY SUSPENSION Original Style Round Tie Rod End Dust Boot Set (Pair) 703639409731 | eBay

    Otherwise it's a new tie rod end and/or tie rod

    So I finally fitted these and they are working well so far, filled the ball ends with grease and put these babys on !

    ENERGY SUSPENSION 9.13103G

    Pin Taper Diameter 12mm, 0.472" or 31/64".
    Socket Diameter 30.5mm, 1.200" or 1 13/64"

    Much cheaper option than new tie rods
