The tierod... Yes The draglink... No
There are stronger ways but, if you need to replace the tierod & didn't want to spend the money for something custom then it might be an option.
Good Luck !!

Re: zj steering on xj

I've found the ZJ's draglink to be 22mm dia. at the adjustment threads, where the early XJ's measure 20mm. Go measure them, it's hard to eyeball 2mm, but it makes for a stronger drag link, TRE, adjuster sleeve, combonation, as this is where they bend sometimes.
