Does anyone know what exactly changed in the design of the tie rods in 2000?
Ford shows two different part numbers, YS4Z3A131CA and YS4Z3280CB, with a cutover date of 7/1/00, but the outer ends, the rack and the knuckle appear to be unchanged, so...
Moog also has two different models for 2000 (EV418, EV419), but not all aftermarket vendors do.
Anyone know for sure? I'm asking because I'm rebuilding the front end of a 2000 wagon. My door sticker says 11/99, so I'm getting the Moog EV418. I hope that's right.
Thanks for any insight.
