Drag Link - Pitman Arm

Howdy folks,

I just recently went 2.5" on my springs (SPUA) and have found that the steering eometry is out. I have a smaller turning circle on one side in comparison the the other.

It's too damn expensive over in Australia at the moment to go get a dropped pitman arm but I can get my drag link extended for $40 (about $20US).

I don't really care about bump steer as i have a trick three shock stabiliser setup. What I am worried about is, WILL IT WORK GOOD or will it JUST WORK?

thanks guys

Re: Drag Link - Pitman Arm

I've gone SpOA, and I built my own z-link, which means I also had to extend it. I've been very happy with it so far. I've heard stories about the pitman arm getting tangled in the suspension, and I just liked the idea of the z-link better. As far as bumpsteer is concerned....Well, I don't really have any complaints, but I don't have a lot to compare to, if you know what I mean. Not too many zooks around here. I do have a knicker-knob (ya know that spinning knob you see on a lot of old tractors?) on my steering wheel, and that greatly aids controlling bump-steer...But you can't beat the price of fabbing your own z-link!
