I've heard that larger tie rods (11/16") can be swapped onto an A body front end to stiffen things up in the handling dept? My question is which cars should I look at for parts that will fit. I found a complete front end from a 73 Scamp that I'm going to pick up for my 72 Demon to do the big brake thing and I was wondering if I should get the tie rods with everything else, or should I get them somewhere else. Are the 73 Scamp tie rods the small ones like my car or are they bigger?

You want tie rod ends off of a C body they are the 11/16 ones. I got mine at AutoZone. I tried the adjustment sleeves off of a C body but they are to long. I got a set of alum. ones off a guy on Ebay. I had him make a set at 7 1/4" long with the 11/16 size.

I thought all C-body tie-rods/sleeves were the same?

Thanks for the info guys it's much appreciated. A couple more questions. Can I keep my 72 power steering box with everything else being from a 73 car? Do you know of a good source for the Moog suspension parts? I've looked around the internet but without much luck. Just Suspension's web site has the thicker tie rods and sleeves, but they seem kind of expensive. I have all the big parts chains where I live, Autozone, Napa, and a few smaller independent shops. How much should I expect to pay for new tie rods/sleevs?
