    Default Outer Tie Rod Ends - 1970 Wildcat

    Can anyone recommend a supplier for outer tie rod ends for my 1970 Wildcat?

    The TREs are the last piece in the puzzle to finish up my front end, but the shop doing the work
    on my car has been unable to find a set and I'm not sure about the quality of the ones listed on E-bay.

    Looks like Kanter has them. Im not sure what brand they are and they don't specify. Might be worth a call

    Most of the steering and suspension components of a 70 Wildcat have been long discontinued by Moog and most suppliers

    I went to Autozone's website and it had the inners and outers in stock and ready to ship but it might be best to call and verify. Very pricey though!!!
