Need a LONGER dropped Pitman Arm!
OK, I beefed the steering links and corrected some geometry issues a few years back. Ended up with a Terflex(?) "universal" pitman that has about 4" of drop which correct the DL angle. Unfortunately, it's about 1"-1.25" shorter hole-to-hole (spline to taper) at 5.5" than my OEM arm at 6.75". Now ALL turns require 3+point turns to navigate!
OTOH, since I'm only getting 50% steering, front shafts & joints should be impossible to frag!
I even went back to check posts back '01 (the hayday of this forum BTW) and found a couple references to OEM drop arms, only referencing drop dimensions, but NOT hole-to-hole. Same as the current online offerings... NO mention of length...
Anyone have an idea regarding such a drop pitman arm?
