    I just bought the borgeson sterring box to do a power to power swap so that meant chaning my center link to the manual one. I already did the Granada disc swap years ago and I seem to think we used 68 Cougar tie rods when we did that? What tie rods are you guys using for this conversion?

    Thanks

    Thanks, we did the brake conversion such a long time ago I can't remember why we didn't end up using the granada tie rods. I also wasn't sure if the manual center link makes any difference.

    I think you will have to use Granada outer ends and 65-66 inner ends

    I think the granada outers need to be cut down a bit as they are too long, was hoping for a no hassle solution. I can probably reuse my older ones but I think I'll see if the jobber has some from a 68 cougar to compare. That just sticks in my head as what we used way back when we did the conversion.
