    super lift 1104 arm seems to be the common one. There is an ellusive ford van one floating around but I don't have the part #.

    Just bought a new arm from CLICK. They were good to deal with. Much easier than searching for the Ford.

    pitman arm from a 78-79 ford van will work. It will need to be reamed for one-ton TRE's though. It will also only work on a 2WD steering box.

    i'm using a jeep yj arm. i bought the reamer and it works great. if you don't have alot of lift or a non-stock engine brace it will hit without a bent drag link. i have a straight drag link and a different engine crossmember.
