Need to replace a couple of TRE for a drag link. The current ones looks terrible and are only 1.5 years old. Boots have dry rotted and tre are super rusty looking

Any recommendations on a good brand. Older gm 1 ton style

Proforged, hands down.

Is this for a 87-91 blazer?

Double check the part numbers but this should be a match.

+1 on the Proforged or of course OE. They hold up very well, good boots and very corrosion resistant compared to other brands. Just last week I had the chance look over a plow truck I installed the tie rods, link pins and ball joints on 3 years ago and they look good with no rust and are in good condition, all sealed parts no zerks.
These are Taiwan made and high quality.

Being the OP has an "Older gm 1 ton style" it's possible he can score some older USA made Moog that was pretty decent. I've done that with a few older vehicles buying off of ebay. It's a bit more difficult to weed out the newer from old stock with nearly everyone using stock photos these days though.
