Missing Drag link?

This may be dumb, but I'm really confused about this: I'm swapping my front axle from my '95 to my '97 as the latter is tore up beyond belief. I have the factory manual set, and it is claiming there should be a drag link AND stabilizer bar, AND ITS NOT THERE!! there's not even the bracket or anything. Is this some sort of typo, or was that an option on these things? Its the POS TTb setup, btw.

Ttb doesn't utilize a drag link. Only the f350 with the d60 do.

Betcha there's an astrick next to the drag link portion stating for vehicles equipped with optional Dana 60 model or f350 models only. ;-) if not, misleading for sure. The bolt holes are there for the bracket though.

Nope, its specifically says it for f-250, there's a different section for the 350. Why don't we get a stabilizer bar?

Side to side load is negated through the center pivots on the tttb. With a d60 you need the track bar to eliminate side to side movement of the axle.

"Drag link" connects to steering box pitman arm and passenger side knuckle.
"Tie rod" connects to drag link and driver side knuckle.
"Track bar","panhard bar" connects axle to frame, preventing lateral (side-to-side) movement of axle (D60.)
