    I need to find out about what pitman arm to use when doing a straight axle conversion, Im planning on using large chevy tierod ends in the drag link, Just need to know what pitman arm to use and where to get it.

    NEW ADDED...........ORD says that all is needed is to match the pitman arm length to the steering arm, indexing on the ptiman arm may not match but the box has the same splines as older boxes.
    Thanx, Steve

    look at a pitman arm from a newer model dodge truck. it is 5.5" center on center. got that on from the two part article in fourwheeler about 4 years ago. they published the basics on how someone made their own solid axle conversion. hope it helps. still have the article.
