I have just mounted Sidekick power steering in my Samurai and am wondering what Pitman arm others have used. The Sidekick arm has no drop at all so the drag link angle is too high for my liking.
Are there any factory Pitman arms out there that anyone knows of that will mount to the Sidekick P/S box and have some drop to them like the Samurai one?
Something off another car would be a good cheap way out of it without having to have something custom made.
I have a custom Tracker drop pitman I bought from Sean at Aftermarket 4x4 years ago and it works just fine. I have used it with a Z-link and now with a Breeze X-over with no problems. Though I bought it years ago, it was cheaper than the TT version.
DO NOT cut and weld you steering components on a daily driver unless your a certified welder by trade....that's just asking for trouble. Save your pennies and do it right.....like buy my crossover steering [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]
Im with zuk88. Im definately not going to be cutting and welding a pitman arm. Too much to go wrong there.
$165US is more than i want to spens o an arm also. Im in Australia so thats about twice as much here.
I do have some info that might be handy to all of us though. Apparently the pitman arm off an early model Toyota Tarago (may be called something else over there) fits the Sidekick box. I'll look into this.
