Are the tie rods and drag link from a 94 zj any different than an 89 xj with the same dana 30 front end? i came across this grand cherokee in the junkyard today with only 42K i needed a straight tie rod (mine somehow got bent Wink ) and i took the tie rods drag link and the stabilizer i shouldnt have any problems putting this stuff on right?

They're different. They're bent diffently, and all of the part numbers are different too. The parts aren't directly interchangable.

Not entirely true....some of the parts are direct bolt on replacements. I currently run a tie rod, sleeve and tie rod end from a V8 ZJ under my XJ. The same interchangeability is true for TJ's...

I can't speak to the drag link or steering stabilzer, but the tierod assembly will bolt right in.
