tie rods ?

Im looking into changing out my tie rods, with something that is a lil easier to steer at slower speeds and thinking about going with the 5/8 hiem gear one tie rods. Is anyone running them or heard anything good or bad about them, also any vendors on here stock them and if so what will they set me back ? Thanks in advance JR

What is everyone else using on there rides ?

YES U COULD DO THAT BUT THEN YOU HAVE TO GET THE CORRECT MACHINED MISALIGHNMENT SPACERS FOR THE HEIMS X8 FIND LEFT HANDED THREAD HEIMS GET, THE BOLTS FOR INNER AND OUTER HEIMS AND GET THE CORRECT INNER CLEVISIS FOR YOUR HEIMS IT SOMETIMES IS EASIER TO BUY READY MADE

I was thinking about power steering but she doesnt drive it enough to spend that kind of cash and for me the steering isnt a prob so I think i will go the cheaper way and just get diff tie rods
