I am trying to locate steering tie rod ends, can someone please give me a manufacturer, part number, or even what vehicle these are off?

From Joe Baz:

Hi David, give Paul Nott a call he should be able to help you, I don't think he has anything to do with computers so it's a chance that he hasn't seen this post, failling that you can take the thread size of both ends to a truck spares and they should be able to help. I have three brand new but the sticker came off the box so I don't have any reference either.

From Tim Forsyth:

Hi David,
Paul Nott imports them from the states and his prices definitely looking after us. Check your tie rod arm threads, they wear out due to grit getting in through the clamping split. I had one tie rod drop out which caused full front wheel opposing opposite lock, bloody dangerous, lucky for me it happened in the driveway. I eventually got a machine shop to manufacture two new rods with lock nuts (as per normal for trucks). There is a very quick check with out any dismantling. Look for the clamping slot end narrowing, mine were nearly touching underneath the clamp. When I stripped everything down I found a steel shim between the rod end thread and the rod thread, great when you consider that the front diff had been removed and a new diff housing installed under a previous owner's insurance claim!
