Can anyone help? The mechanic has had my jeep for three months trying to sort a steering problem, it appears the track rod ends have been welded to the bar as a bodge. He has the bar but can't find replacement track rod ends as each time he orders the the threaded part is too big. The size needed is around M10...anyone got any suggestions?

If it is part 16, the ends were fixed on the original part. I’m trying to get one made so the ends screw on, so can be replaced. Do need to know what ends they are
