Hey, does anyone know of a shorter pitman arm for a saginaw setup that I might find in a salvage yard? I have setup wagoneer D44 axles and the tie rod does not clear the springs at all, so I am going with a spring over steering setup, but now I have found that the steering box is not far forward enough to work with the current pitman arm. I could move the steering box forward, but that would be a major PITA in my opinion, I would much rather just find a shorter pitman arm so the drag link does not interfere with the tie rod. I realize I would lose some steering radius, but I don't think that will be an issue, because I cannot get full steering lock anyway on the box without the tires rubbing the springs. Thanks.
