I could be wrong but I seem to recall that some of us used to purchase extra linkage rods and assorted pins and nuts and carry them with us. I gave mine to the guy who bought my 05 LT a while back. Funny thing after I bought the linkage parts I never needed them nor did anyone else I knew that had an LT. I also seem to remember something about a heavy duty linkage assembly that someone was selling. It's heck getting old......
