tie rods and vibe

I have the solid axle up front and i need tie rods. If anyone can point me in the right direction in purchasing tie rods that would be great. Also my truck vibrates at 60-65 mph and my 4wd stick vibrates pretty bad at these speeds too. Anyone got any ideas?

check your u joints in the rear. make sure there isn't one that's sticky or excessively loose also i just replaced all the tie rods and ball joints in my dad's 97 e350. i used the top of the line at carquest main reason being the lifetime warranty.

call them and get a price. if there is an option that matters they will ask you that. for the e350 it was 350 or 400 bucks for all the pieces.otherwise i think that napa has a lifetime warranty on their top of the line tie rods.
