    I have never seen a 4" drop pitman, 2" is available
    a 4" steering arm is common

    If you can't wind the pitman arm you are looking for, I have a raised steering arm I will sell you. I have an ad in the "For Sale" forum. You can see the ad here .

    This picture of your pitman arm is not a 4" drop. Thats a 2" drop as I have one exactly like that on my K30. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    BTW, there is no such thing as a 4" drop pitman arm. 2" drop is the largest available on the market. If there were 4" pitman arms available, they would not last too long since that much of a drop would put way too much stress on the steering gear box and the frame rails. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
