drop pitman arms

Hello all, I have been reading all the on this site for about six months now and have learned tons and saved tons so thanks alot. I am about to do a custom spring over on my 88 zuk and I think I have gotten all the tips and triks that I need from you all and guys in my local club, but I am needed to buy a drop pitman arm and am trying to find the cheapest price? Any suggestions or any one got one for sell? Also any tidbits on the custom spring over that you think will be helpfull please share the knowledg!! BTW this is my first Zuk and me and my two boys (Greg 5 and Cody 4) have already been beatin the trails with it, worn out the tires that where on it. That is another question what tires to go with after the SPOA my buddy is trying to talk me into buying some military tires I think they are 7.50 X 15. I dont know I am on a budget, but dont like to be stuck either so what do you think?

Re: drop pitman arms

Hey Jmoe,
I have a dropped pitman arm that I'll sell to you, it was only used for approx. 3-4k milles on my 86 Zuk.
It is from RRO, will work with a SPOA. I'll let it go for $50 plus ship&hand. I'm located in NY

Re: drop pitman arms

sounds like you have found a pitman arm, now for the military tires... I have have a set of my 42 willys MB. cant beat them. i wheel on all sorts of terrain. my willys will NEVER see real hard wheelin, so I cant speak how the military tires will hold up under tough conditions. if the army can use them, i would not worry though. i can tell you however, that under nice to moderate trails, they are great!!! are you looking at directional, or non directional? I have nondirectionals on my willys. Now don't everybody get mad because I admit to owning a willys. It after all is a willys, NOT a [email protected]@p!!! ha,ha BIG DIFFERENCE!!!
hope this helps
later

Re: drop pitman arms

i know people who swear by military tires,one thing i heard though from more than one person is most of those are real bad on ice so if you got um they will do you right ,but stpping on iceis like being on almost bald tires

Re: drop pitman arms

My suggestion on tires for general use would be 30x9.50 or 31x10.50 mud tires mounted on 15x7 rims.

Hey Jmoe,
I think that the shipping & handling would only be about 5-7 dollars to where you are located.

Re: drop pitman arms

About how to do a custom SPOA, I have a post on my web-page on how to do a SPOA on a budget! Take a look and see what you think, it might help ya, if you never done or seen a SPOA done before. I have a friend that put 31's on after he did his SPOA and then he put a 2" body lift and 1.5" shackles and has 33" Muds on, looks good that way! Its what you want, and what kind of wheeling you do!
Good luck!
