    Nope!

    You need the Superlift SUP-1104 PITMAN ARM

    For the STEERING ARM on the knuckle I recommend Offroad Designs' D60 High Steer arm. Think ahead brother!

    You can always buy the second one later after you bash your tierod!

    Randy Ellis (top fabricator and winner of the second TTC)

    recommended the ORD arm and crossover setup. The reason: the homework has been done and the angles are taken into consideration (I think it's the Akerman angles). Randy know his /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifshiznit and so does Steve Watson. Much trial and error has already been dealt with. WHy reinvent the wheel. Fork out the dough and deal with less headaches /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    do you have a new crossmember? I would think you would need a big bend in the draglink to clear the crossmember without a drop pitman.
