Pitman arm....Stock or Dropped?
I don't think I got a definitive answer on this the first time I asked, so I am trying again...
I have a 1990 k1500 with a 4" trailmaster lift, and a completely worn out pitman arm. I don't know anything about them, but have been told it is a complete goner. I don't know if the existing one is OEM, or dropped.
Here is my question:
I have heard conflicting opinions. Some say regardless of what it is, it can be replaced with stock, if lift is only 4".
Others have said the same thing, but have advised to go with an aftermared dropped model, because even though an OEM can be used, it wears faster than the dropped unit.
Yet others have stated that OEM will not fit on a 4" lifted unit, and a dropped MUST be used.
Can anyone clarify this for me?
