    Yup, we have a 2" drop, that's not a problem. They're $95.00.

    I hate to ressurect an old thread but I'm not seeing a drop pitman arm for a 4wd steering box on your web site. The only thing I can find is one listed on the crossover steering page, which I assume is for a 2WD box.

    Am I missing something or have you stopped selling these or what?

    I have a raised steering arm and an aluminum block in there now (from the p.o.) and I'm getting movement between the block and the knuckle. I'd like to get a dropped pitman to eliminate the block.

    Thanks.

    edit: I just read over on pirate that the drag link shouldn't be horizontal. Anybody able to confirm or refute this?

    From the factory they are horizontal. When lifted they also should be horizontal for correct steering in both directions.

    That's pretty much what I figured, too. The other fella had a compelling argument, though:

    Figured it couldn't hurt to get some other opinions.

    FYI, we're talking about non-crossover steering. The link between the steering box and the left side knuckle.
    I'm running mine right now so it's parallel with the spring, not the ground.
    It's working great on the road. No bump steer, no wandering, no nothing. The only bad thing is that you lose some downward travel, so it might be an issue off road.

    I picked up a drop pitman on eBay, so I'm ready to swap it in as soon as I need to.
