Hello all! Finally installing the TCP manual rack in the 69. The car was power steering until now and I think Ill have to change the tie rod ends to manual. Question is there a difference between 69 tie rods and 70 tie rods, also what about the 302 boss cars??? I want to beef up so if 70's are better Ill go that route. Also what are the best brand and a good place to buy them. The kit has a tapered adapter for a 70 will manual 69 tierods work?

THANKS Paul ::

so you ordered the rack for a '70. the inner tie rods for 69 boss and '70 are the same, bigger the regular 69 inner tie rods. there is no differance between a 69 power and manual inner tie rod. i think the trw rods are good, but what-ever you get,get greasable!

If it helps any, in 70 Ford installed larger spindles. what's weird is at the same time they made two different sizes of out wheel bearings, mid-year change.
