Does anyone know what the thread pitch is for the steering rack? I need to get two new lock nuts for the outer tie rods but I'm not sure what the thread pitch is. Thanks

For future reference the thread pitch for the 88 steering rack inner tie rod is 9/16"-18 SAE. Information for anyone who has to replace the outer tie rod jam nuts like I did. I believe in 1994, Ford started to use a M14-1.5 thread for their inner tie rods so if anyone is trying to use this just beware that it could be either thread.
