I just ordered new tie rod assembly and drag link assembly from Ford for my 2004 Damon Intruder F53. Hard to find, Napa could not source. Ford OEM online found and price was ok (dealer in Colorado will receive and I pick up, online price he said better than his price) but they no longer sell just tie rod ends.
Complete assembly $400 for both. I lost a boot on one tie rod and some creaking sounds generated and feel best to replace it all for safety. Only 28,000 miles but....better safe than sorry.
Question: I'm going to install myself then get alignment. Looking for Torque specs for the Drag Link nuts and the Tie Rod nuts specific to this model year F53. 2004.
Any Info is appreciated
