Exactly, try to cross over to ford parts if all possible, but a chevy tie rod or ends or both should fix you. Do you have the "Y" steering, or the crossover style? If the Y then it might be a good time to update to the crossover at this point.

Buy Moog tie rod ends and you will come out far superior to Chevy.
