Center Link Rebuild Service? - TexasBoss - 11-22-2019

Looking for a service where I can send the center link from my 1971 Boss for a rebuild.  I want to keep the original component...just want it rebuilt/refurbished.

I did my own, not much to it. I needed to straighten it slightly with a small press. It's been several years now and honestly I do not remember everything I did to it.
I am sure someone who has done this more recently can expand.

There are no wear parts on the center link.

Exactly - nothing to wear unless it's bent. 

Pitman arms are available new, repop idler arms are not correct, so best to rebuild yours if it's an original. New bushings are made by Moog. Tie rod ends and sleeves are just regular auto parts store items.

Check Rockauto, they have the best prices around and aren't selling you 3rd world parts at premium prices.
