    I can get a BDS Pitman arm cheaper than Superlift arm (same application as Superlift 1104) but it's got a 3" drop instead of a 2". Anyone forsee any problems using this with the Rockrod in cross-over steering?

    Thanks

    I used the pitman arm froma 1978 3/4 Ford van. It fits the 2wd chevy steering box without modification and has the right amount of drop to clear the frame. Get em your local junk yard.
