I did a brief search of the Archives but didn't find anything.

I need new rear tie-rods for an EARLY Style ur-q suspension.  IE...1983.
seems most parts sources only list ONE tie-rod now that appears to be
same as the later tie-rods.  The early tie rods attached in the middle
the subframe instead of toward the back where the sway bar is located on
early models.  Problem is, this tie rod seems to be LONGER than the

I took out both and compared them and they seem to be similar in overall
dimensions except length.  The early ur-q unit is longer and does have a
thicker main shaft but the ends are the same.  Because of the length
however it doesn't appear they are swapable.

Does anyone know where to find an early style or an early style END that
would be compatible.  The early arms don't have the funky Dogleg end
the later style does.  Any END with the right conical angle and size,
thread should work.
