[urq] Early Rear Tie-Rods

I found them locally at Motion AutoParts.
Roughly $25 each.  Don't remember exactly.

They are listed as an Outer Tie-Rod end for an 86' - 96' Suzuki sidekick.

The part number the dealer could not look up as its not a suzuki PN but
rather a MOOG PN#.

Anyhow, I'll get one today and see if it works next time I"m at my car.
This particular suspension is actually on my 4ktq which is residing in
Central America at the moment as the Coil-Overs off that car are now in my
83' ur-q.  Weird I know but....

Thanks for the tips guys.
