Steering drag link ball pins size.
#1
Can anyone please tell me the size of the new ball ends of the ball pins for the drag link (steering side tube)?  Measured by micrometer.  Am overhauling steering and interested to see just how much the ball ends have worn if any.  
Also what is length of the springs that fit in the thrust blocks.

Enthusiasts of precision engineered pattern parts look away now.... I've just measured several new drag link ball ends which I have in stock. The smallest measures .547" the largest .565" The other two measure .554" and .556" The new springs that I have are more consistent and measure .7" give or take a thou' or so.

Thanks Stuart.
Mine measuring at right angles and diagonally between the first 2 top to bottom.
0.5470, 0.5438, 0.5460, 0.5570. So around 3.2 thou between fore and aft and side to side faces.
0.5520, 0.5500, 0.5520, 0.5505. so that is around 2 thou between fore and aft and side to side.
So looks like they are ok for further use.

Springs 0.579 and 0.632.......thus new springs required.

They do have grease nipples each end and used Moly but next will be using the AFMT dosed grease.
