Default petroworks z bar eliminator kit questions

I'm really hoping that someone else has had and found the answer to my question. I purchased the petrowroks z-bar eliminator kit about 6 years ago. The tie rods that came with it are all toasted! I know that two of them are stock samurai tie rod ends. My question is does anyone have a part number or at least the vehicle that the other two (reverse threaded) are from. I called petroworks but the guy didnít know all he said was that it was off some 60's vehicle. If anyone knows any info on these tie rods please let me know

If this is true , And Petroworks hasn't tracked there own conversion parts usage. I'd scream to high heaven on there costumer service line until they figure it out.
An easy fix would be to convert to Hyme joints...Boxcar....

I really don't like heim joints on off-road vehicles - once dirt gets in there, they don't last long.

That really depends on the quality of the heim joints you running.
I've run them on my sand car for years in the worst environments , No issues....
And will be converting my Zuke when needed.
If it indeed is an early chevy (1960 s ) this is probably a good fit: AFCO 921-20033LF (JEGS)
