Pitman arm for Danna 44 SUA
Background: Swapping a '74 Wagoneer_Dana 44 SUA with the waggy tie rod and drag link (shortened the long side 4 3/8" or so). I've done all the searches and read all the posts... seems like the least understood part of the swap. This is what I've learned so far:
1) Pitman arm from a late 70's Camaro is beefy, but taper is too small for the Wagoneer_drag link.
2) Pitman arm from a Chevy_Astro_van is about the right size, but taper is also too small for Wagoneer_drag link.
3) Pitman arm from a 70's Dodge_pickup(power or manual steering) has the right taper for the Wagoneer_drag link, but is a little shorter than the CJ pitman arm.
4) Pitman arm from a mid 70's Wagoneer_is same length as the '86 CJ pitman arm and it goes without saying that it fits the Wagoneer_drag link.
I've not hooked everything up yet (probably this week), but if the Wagoneer_pitman arm is too long, I will go back and get the Dodge_one.
Did I say I hate those hyperlinks?
