Drop Pitman Donor Vehicle???

I checked the search first and couldn't locate this. I know I've seen it mentioned.... what vehicle can we get a DP for a 4" lift on a 78 CJ7?
Thanks

I think you're going to have to order an aftermarket dropped pitman arm. I bought mine thru 4 wheel drive hardware.

Yeah, I've found a bunch on-line and at JC W for around $60 but I know someone discussed taking one out of a Ford or something... may have been a minivan even. I'm heading to our one-price-for-everything yard in the morning and planned to see if I could score one there.

Score a stock 3" DP from a wrecked Cherokee Lorado edition for the whopping price of $6.75!!!! [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img] It was the only DP on the entire yard with a drop over 1.5".

As always.... thanks for the info guys.
