    went to 4WPW today to get one, and they said they don't make them for my truck...this is not true, is it?

    I believe Skyjacker makes a 2" drop pitman arm. You can order it from them, or i believe National Tire &amp; Wheel lists one in their ad, give them a call. It does exist, sometimes you gotta talk to a few people at 4WP to get the whole story, not everybody knows everything, they just think they do.

    when getting my lift 80% said it dont exits, they thought it was the steering arm. But like Leland said its made by skyjacker and NTL has them thats where i got mine.

    make sure it what you get.

    I ordered one from Desert Rat and when i got it it was the steering arm, I call them and they still insist that its what I asked for. So makesure its the pitman arm when you call.

    I have had a few of them before and still have one on my K30 now.
    Skyjacker makes them and part number is #CA 50.
    I just sold a brand new one to Clay Jephson on this site last week.

    Just go back and give them the part number. That will show them you don't put up with incompetent bastards!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here's a pic of the one I got at 4WP:

    I believe it was Superlift but it might be SkyJacker. I suggest you ask another person at 4WP.

    that looks like a adjustable drop drag link not pitman arm, pitman aarm connects to steering box , pitman arm to drag link, drag link to steering arm, steering arm to knuckle
