I am doing a complete rebuild of the suspension on my 67RS (first ever suspension work) and reading/learning as I go.. I am putting on a Hotchkis TVS, Bilstein shocks, and Global West u/l control arms (del-a-lum).. I started looking at the tie rods and it looks like the bushings need replaced also.. In addition, it looks like somebody had replaced the endlink's at some point.. The car is manual steer, however, I will also be upgrading to power as a mid summer project so I want to be able to take full advantage of the suspension changes making now.
Since I am tearing it all apart, and $$ already into it, wanted some input on the following:
1.) With the suspension rebuild are the stock tie rods okay, or would I be better off going with something like the Hotchkis tie rod replacement kit (inner/outer and idler arm)?
2.) Recommendations on tie rod bushings?
3.) What size (height) end link's should I use - I'm not sure the one's on the car now are correct. I was looking at a kit from Energy Suspension with poly grommets..
4.) Anything else should consider suspension wise?
Any input is appreciated..
