    Other parts like tie rod ends and idler arm are different, the center link will fit - but you need to get the right idler.

    There are three different center links '70-'72, '73-'74 & '75-'77, each group use a different idler arm configuration. I believe '73-'74 idler arm bushings are pressed into link, '75-'77 has a pin on link that fits into idler, same arm is used on Granada.

    Tom is right - I corrected my post. The center link will fit fine but you need to make sure to get the correct idler arm that matches your center links year.

    There's not much to go wrong with P/S center links. If you are having P/S problems the valve and cylinder are seperate parts.
