    I need the infamous ford van pitman arm for crossover steering. I currently have the superlift drop arm and I will do a straight trade for the right van arm, or just buy it from you.

    Those van arms were from the 70s Ford dont remember exact year.I bought 2 off this site like 3-4 years ago.I will look in my old posts and see if I can find some info but maybe these pic will help?

    Edit: 78 Ford Van but probably other early years are the same.

    Been doing some digging. That part number there (the D5U part) says 1975 Ford Econoline. Looks like it would definitely work as far back as 75, and as late as 79 I believe. Whatever that's worth to ya.
