Re: Who sells the cheapest drop pitman arm?

Also, I read that XJ pitman arms as a drop pitman arm on a YJ, anything work like this on a CJ?

thanks

I think the YJ arms work as a dropped pitman on CJ's!

If you have a saginaw steering, Junk yard, any GM model will work.

Re: Who sells the cheapest drop pitman arm?

This is definatly not the cheapest, but it is the best. It puts everything on top of the knucles/under the pitman arm so the geometry returns to normal. With a dropped pitman arm you will never have full turn to the left (or right [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] it's one or the other!) I put one of these on my Jeep and love it.

My girlfriend said if I spent one more dime on my Jeep she would leave. Man I'm going to miss her!
