Disc brake tie rod question

I have a 1970 gmc c20. I'm upgrading to front disc brakes, I have drop spindles for 71 n up. I know I need to get year correct ball joints, can I just update the whole steering linkage to 71 n up? Thanks

Re: Disc brake tie rod question

We have a adjust sleeve that will convert from a early inner to later outer. It is 5/8" on the inside and 11/16" on the outside. No need to change all the linkage, and can just update your tie rod ends.

That is my original plan was to use to the conversion sleeve but was curious if I could just use later year components since I am putting new linkage in anyway.

Using all later components will work as well.
