    This what you are looking at?: https://www.1aauto.com/search?q=steering+kit&year=1992&model=1523

    Probably work but probably cheap Chinese parts. Buy 2 sets. Use 1, use other later when price is higher. Moog center link is higher than the total of all those. Use really good grease!

    On edit: These do not have grease fittings

    Is why I said buy 2. Shows lifetime warranty...send defective parts back & they replace. 2 sets at that price would keep your down time to a minimum. Enjoy!!

    Some of the offshore steering parts are undersized.

    I like Moog's Quicksteer line. (rockauto) Full size joints, grease nipples. Fraction of the cost of Problem Solver. I grease my stuff and it lasts long enough for me.

    My opinion, do not cheap out on steering or brake components. If you by a cheap fender and it flaps going down the road, that sucks.... but it won’t hurt anything. A cheap steering or brake component fails, best case, you only need a clean pair of undies....... worst case, you plow through another vehicle and kill everyone.

    I have almost a grand in refreshing the front axle in my Excursion. All the consumables have been replaced with Spicer, XRF, Wagner or Timken components. An 8000 pound vehicle needs to be able to be controlled 200% of the time.

    I may search for a value on something that makes it go (like ordering a starter or alternator from the web), but I only buy good stuff that makes it stop or steer........
