Need some information, I have ordered outer tie rod ends from Rockauto and from another source. They all say they are for a 1979 Subaru Brat. However, when we install them they tighten down so far that the rubber boot collapses and gets crushed as they are tightened. After a short period the rubber boot tears and fails. One of the original outer tie rod ends is obviously longer where it mounts into the hole.
Is there a part number or a source where I know I'm going to get the correct tie rod end. One that is longer and mounts correctly with the proper distance.
