Shackle Reversal Question

My friend has a shackle reversal and SOA. His pitman arm hits his tie rod. Any suggestions?

This is an '82 Scrambler, with FJ springs.

I am hoping that there is a shorter dropped pitman that could be used.

Re: Shackle Reversal Question

The only dropped pitman arms I could find aftermarket was the 4" variety. Searched through the wrecking yard and presto, found a Wagoneer had a 2" drop stock. Maybe that'll help.

Do you happen to know the length of it center to center?
