I would send pictures but mine is a 95. I wouldn't be able to take pictures until the end of the week. My wife would probably take some and send them to me if it would help.

What, specifically, are you interested in? Mines a 98, but, I don't think all that much changed over the years.

Left inner tie rod. They are giving me one with a hole in it and it's longer then the one on the truck now, which is shorter and no hole. I want to know what that hole goes to. They even looked it up by my Vin and said this is the right part

Are they sure that they have the right part? So far as I know, there is no hole in the left tie rod, on either steering application. (inverted Y, or T steering.) Maybe it's for the steering stabilizer?

That's what I thought but it is the correct part and it looks like this and is under "inner left tie rod" the only two bars with holes are on the drag link and the right tie rod. But here is the order they say fits that's why I wanted to see a picture.

Google images has a ton of pics of lifts, T and Y steering, etc.

That part pictured is the drag link and goes from passenger side knuckle to pitman arm where there's an adjuster sleeve and another small tie rod.

The hole is for the long tie rod from the drag link to the driver's knuckle. When all are attached it forms a "Y" that it sitting laterally.
