I have the flat top knuckles and the arms (there flat )

should i use heim joints or should I go with tre style joints ? If I go tre I need to drill the taper in the arms .

I found a kit for the heim joints comes with everything for around $200

Input is welcome

I've been pondering what to do on my 74 and eventually the 73 project in the barn....Heims or something else. I'm going to do a tie rod over conversion (TRO)

The something else that seems to be common on the broncos boards is a chevy 1-ton tie rod end. If the tre ever needs to be replaced for some reason(ie breakage) they can be found at any parts store. The debate of which is better gets heated on the bronco boards. I think that's more of an issue of putting chevy parts on a ford more than anything else

My delima in this is I don't trust my welding skills enough in such a critical area.

Complete off road and other venders sell a kit that you just bolt up. All the fab work is done. I might just go that route.
