split wishbone

can anyone advise on the best type of ends to use on a split wishbone for a model a? Wondering if I should use rod ends or 4 bar ends. Tie rod ends?

Thanks

Tie rod ends last longer. Urethane bushings ride better. But hard to find with correct angle. Speedway sells 7 degree ones that work well on a new fabrication.

I have a Chassis Engineering split wishbone kit under my 36 roadster and it comes with tie rod ends. It certainly is easy if you are going to split your stock wishbones. I have been pleased with the set up.
