Anybody know the stock tie rod length on 52 F3

I need to replace my tie rod and end on my 52 F-3 due to the fact that it is bent like a spaghetti string. I measured it at 49" from tie rod to tie rod centers, the problem is it's bent pretty good. I straightened it best I could.....
Speedway Motors sells a 7/8 OD 11/16 tie rod ends kit for 54 bucks, but they list 48" (-1/2 - +3/4), next length is 52"

Will the 48" be long enough?

Thanks Ross, this truck is/was a Kansas farm truck and everything is worn out! I have new springs front and rear, shackle bushings/pins, etc. that should arrive today, new king pins will be installed next week and hopefully I'll have her back to a roller soon!
