I'M REBUILDING THE COMPLETE FRONT END IN MY BRAT (EXCEPT FOR THE STRUTS AND STRUT MOUNTS.......GROUP BUY ANYONE?) AND I'VE RAN INTO A LITTLE SNAG. I ORDERED ALL THE PARTS FROM ROCKAUTO..BEARINGS, SEALS, CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS, CALIPERS, BRAKE LINES, TRAVERSE ARM BUSHINGS, SWAY BAR BUSHINGS, STEERING RACK BELLOWS, TIE ROD ENDS. MY FIRST PROBLEM WAS WITH THE BELLOWS. THE ONES LISTED FOR IT HAVE A LITTLE OPENING AT THE BOTTOM WHERE I GUESS A TUBE CONNECTS TO BOTH SIDES. WELL IT COMES TO FIND OUT MINE HAS A NEWER STYLE WITH A BIG FUNNELL TYPE END ON IT LIKE THE 82'S. NO PROB, ORDERED THE CORRECT ONES. BUT THE INNER TIE ROD ENDS THAT ROCK AUTO AND EVERY BODY ELSE SHOWS FOR IT ARE 11 3/4 IN LONG. THE ONES I HAVE ARE 10 1/2 LONG, AND THE NEWER ONE'S FOR THE 82 ARE 9 3/4. I CAN'T FIND ANY THAT ARE THE RIGHT LENGTH.(10 1/2) I'M COMMITED TO CHANGING THEM TOO BECAUSE SOMEHOW MY SON PUT ONE IN THE TRASH PILE AND IT'S GONE!:banghead: I'M HOPING SOMEONE ELSE HAS COME ACROSS THIS AND FOUND A SOLUTION. THANKS
