Which pitman arm for Waggy linkage on CJ box SOA?

I am running a Waggy front D44 with Parts Mike high steer arms. I am going to have my tie rod shortened so I can use the Waggy linkages. What pitman arm will fit the CJ power steering box and the waggy drag link? Anyone have one?

Thanks,

A Waggie pitman arm will fit the CJ box.

I ended up using one from a ford truck (on my uncut narrow track waggy front)that was just the right length, but was about 3x the thickness of the cj arm. I had to shorten my drag link a couple of inches, but I was able to shorten it at the threads.

I was trying to cut corners by doing this also but note the gm tre's are twice the size as the jeep and the rockstomper rods are twice as big. The bars are only 75 each and the tre's are like 25 if you get them at vip. The special one might have to be ordered if you dont have a reamer bit. (The one that goes through the tierod end and then the draglink goes into it. I think it is a lot better set up than the waggy parts. Mike

I used a ford truck pitman arm. It was shorter then the stock cj arm so i lost some steering. So one of these days it is back to trying to work out my steering issues.
