    The GTO uses rack and pinion steering unlike our ricurculating ball type, the GTO also does not have swaybar end links.

    No to both. Catera parts are your only choice. RockAuto.com has them at good prices. What other advice do you need?

    Just trying to save a buck or two. Talked to a guy at rock auto and the ends were out over thirty days which means they dont have. Was trying to avoid buying the whole piece, But...can the bushings in these parts be replaced ? they do have the links.(rockauto)

    Yes it does. Number 5 below. They're just different from the Catera's.

    I don't think tie rod ends are rebuildable.
