ball joint dimensions for poly dust boots
 
Need to get the upper and lower ball joint and tie rod dimensions so I can order a set of Energy Suspension universal dust boots for a 1968 Fairlane. I'm tired of the dry rotting problems. If someone can tell me the Energy part number that would be great. Otherwise the dimension of the taper rod and the top of the body the dust boot would rest on would work. Thanks

You are somewhat in luck as I have some 67 tie rods handy. These are Moog. You can cross reference them. I'm pretty sure the business ends are the same dimensions as 68.

ES369RL 0.55", 1.47"

ES363RL 0.55", 1.44"

Thnx Adrian I can use the tie rods info.

I still need the ball joint info from anyone who might have them lying around. Need largest part of the taper and the top of the ball joint where the boot sets on it.

First tie part number was a typo. It should be ES360RL. The stud diameter on the lower ball joint is 0.718". I believe the upper is the same size.
