    You should have to use the ball joints and outside tie rod ends for a 71 3/4.

    try any local auto parts store, or online truck restoration places (like LMC Truck) you will need to order new tie rode ends, and sleves, and ball joints for a 1971 or 1972 Chevy Pickup. The lower ball joint will have to be pressed in, you can take it to just about any machine shop to get this done, and you will have to drill out the rivets on the upper control arm and the new ball joint will bolt in.
