	BUt, I have found that when my Tie-Rod ends wear out the inner
ones are usually worn too so I replace the whole unit anyhow.  SO, either
way you have to weld or bend.  I spose if you have someone else bend it
then it would approach the cost of a ur-q tie-rod-set but if I can do it
myself I can do it for cheaper.  And if you need a place to weld (ie..if
you can't weld or dont trust your welds for suspension bits) then the ur-q
rod route could be expensive to.  I guess they are both good ways though.
I spose the ur-q end may be a little stronger.

	Is the 5kt tie-rod-end a beefier unit than the ur-q unit?
