movement in drag link

After I replaced steering stabilizer on 1976 f150 4x4 I grabbed drag link where steering stabilizer is attached. The grad link and tie rod both will rotate about a quarter of a turn back and forth. I am not sure if this is normal. I have no loose movement in steering wheel. Just replaced power steering pump, all hoses, steering shaft rag joint, and steering box with red-head box. Any help will be great. thanks for any and all answers.

I have a 1976 F-100 4x4 and my drag link also rotates. I'm not sure if this is normal or not. Sorry I couldn't be of any help, but if it is not normal it must be a fairly common problem as mine has it too.
