    I searched and was extremely surprised nobody had mentioned this before.
    an ES2147RL (used on dodge vans) will fit the pitman arm ,that ORD sells for their x-over kits, w/o reaming and it's the same thread (7/8-18) as the gm's.
    am I the only one that's used an es2147 at the pitman arm. :confused:

    DLE's are weak, use TRE's.

    well, es2026 and es2027 are DLE's and they get used all the time. are those considered weak?
    as I understand it a draglink goes from the pitman arm to steering arm and tie-rod goes from one knuckle to the other.
