One more point about your parts. 1971 to 1972 have a different center link than 1973 to 1987. Whick means your Inners, outers and sleve could be an issue if what you have is 71 or 72.

If you are lucky, then your outer tie rod ends will match 73 to 87, if not then you have 71 to 72 which are different. Cross your fingers

Yes and no, 67 to 72 will all interchange for fit, but the screw and indentation by the wing window was only in 1972. Your door pannels are 72 only also. The doors you have are a plus.
