To all Club members, Thank you for all your support helping me bring my car back correct. Here is a couple new ones. First, The Tie rod ends, Which one is correct for my 1932 100-A? the small one? or the larger style. Second, I took my shocks off to have them rebuilt and I noticed the fronts have two different arms on them, Is this correct? If not what is the correct one? straight or bent? Third, what shock link setup should I have on the car? the Forks or the Dog bones? Forth, Should the break cables be spiraled or gravel guard covered? That is it for now.....

The link in pix 2 are what is on my cars.
The brake cables have a loom cover.
Pix 5 , the tierod end on the right looks to be 34-36. Has your tierod been converted to left hand thread on one end?
Others can speak to the shocks in pix1

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Curt, To be clear you have the Dog bone (Pic 2 ) on all four wheels? So was the fork used for later models? My Tie rod is both RH threads. So the Ball joint on the right is what was on my car. I thought they were later joints. (And Worn out) Thank you for your help.

#1 yes
#2 Maybe 33 not 34-36.
#3 Don't throw it away, I might be able to rebuild it if it is 34-36 Auburn. There are other tie rod ends that look similar.

As I understand the shock links, The 'dog bone' was 31 and the fork was 32-33.
Front levers should be straight
The shock end caps are labelled A,B,C and D for each corner, At least for 31 they are!
