Default 88FC35 Drag Link

Looking for part number or any info on drag link replacement parts for 88FC35.
It seems to be three piece setup, so possible all I need are drag link ends, am I correct?

Your darg link ends are the same as mine and are the following part numbers:

Steering Arm Tube Tie Rod Ends, Meritor Style, C-E 5.75", C Zerk, RH R230070 BB #1300391

Steering Arm Tie Rod Ends, Meritor Style, C-E 5.75", C Zerk, LH R230071 BB #1300383

Soak the old ends overnight in penetrating fluid and have a very large vise and pipe wrenches to break them free. Make sure to measure the overall length before starting so you have the same length when done or your steering wheel will be wonky.

Just to be sure:
Meritor site says those are tie rod ends.
Are they the same as drag link ends?
One thing I know for sure: tire rod and drag link are two different parts...

Thank you for that treasure! I will sure keep a copy of that beauty.
For some reason my drag link ends look differently than on the diagram on page 68.
Mine look more similar to tie rod ends.

They changed the drag link design on the fcs somewhere between 87-88. You may have the correct drawings and part number in your blue box. Or Barry may have posted the correct part numbers for your drag link.

The only difference I found was the location of the grease zerk.
