FRONT END PARTS

Ok, I need to replace just abaoout all my front end parts, I've already done the Ball Joints, And i need to change out the tie-rods. And everything else. I'm just not sure what they are called. Can someone or does someone have a picture of the front end with parts called out or have a list of parts that need changing I was under there this weekend and theres lots of movement. worn bushings etc... Need to change out steering box also. I just don't know what everything is called starting with the pittman arm on down.

the part that comes down off the pitman arm that is diagonail, is called the drag link, other than that, you have your tie rods, and ball joints, please make sure to change all 6 seals when you do your ball joints, and grease your wheel bearings as you take them out, also take apart your auto lock hubs, there is a bearing inside there that you need to grease, also a great time to check your u joints
