    you will need the granada outer tie rod ends. the good news is that they swap in place of the stock ends.

    tie rods are the same... you may need the granada outer ends, i know the 65-66 uses them. worst case scenario, is new outer tie rod ends, and shorten all four ends a quarter inch or so...

    I have done this on my 68. Use the 68 inner and adjustment sleaves. You will need the granada outers. No trimming is necessary.

    Use ES445R (or RL depending on brand) outers on your original adjusting sleeves. As noted above, no trimming is necessary. The only difference between the original and the ES445 is the diameter of the tapered mounting stud.
