    I got a #1104 Superlift pitman arm for $43 shipped to my door from 4WPW.
    It's here, and now I have a question.
    WHat is this I here about 1/2ton tre and 1ton tre?
    The steering arm I bought is reamed for a 7/8 chevy TRE. It hasn't arrived yet, so I can't compare it to my pitman arm.
    Do they have the same taper?
    I am hoping it uses the same TRE's as my tie rod, which are:
    ES2234R and ES2010L.
    That way, fewer part numbers to keep ahold of.

    those tierod ends will fit the steering arm
    it is only if you want to run the 2026r and 2027L when you have to retaper
    not sure why some refer to them as '1ton' as they are the same for all the K trucks IIRC

    OK, those TRE will fit the 7/8" steering arm.
    What about this Superlift #1104 pitman arm? Will they fit it also, or do I have to use a DLE on that side?

    I am aware of the DLEs having better misalignment ability, but I am hoping the TRE will be OK. I have a little over 6" of front lift. The pitman arm is approx. 3" dropped.
    I just need to see about this pitman arm now.

    sorry I meant they fit the Superlift arm.
    all of those tre numbers have 7/8"-18tpi
    the taper depth is the difference

    Taper depth is different - I don't understand that. Maybe when I get my steering arm in it will be obvious.
    Does this mean the TRE possibly won't fully seat on the steering arm or the pitman arm?

    means the angle is the same but how deep they drill the hole is different between the draglink ones and the tierod ones.
    as long as you use the TREs the arms are designed for you will have no worries.
    if you plan for one size, and one or both of the arms are the other size you will need a different length draglink.
