    I was looking for a drop pitman arm for my 83 Jimmy. I have a 6 inch lift with a D60 front. All I can find are raised steering arms for the 10Bolts and steering blocks for the D60. Which would be better the drop pitman arm or the steering block? Where could I find a good deal on either of them?

    the part number for a skyjacker dropped pitman arm is a CA50, as it is only a 2 inch drop, do you already have the raised steering block, if not i have a brand new one that was installed on mine for about 2 days before i went crossover.

    if you want the best setup? try www.offroaddesign.com and get the crossover setup. plus you need a 2x4 box to bolt on your truck. a bit more but worth it. the pics dont do the stuff justice. i have the big kit with all parts high steer. and the stuff is big! the arms are about 1 1/4" thick.

    I just installed a 60 this week in my 76 shortbed, along with 8in suspension. I installed the block, but think im going to have to install the drop pitman arm also. I still have a pretty good angle.

    steering block

    I don't have a steering block yet. What size is your block? Does it come with the new studs and everything? How much would you sell it for? Thanks for the help.
