    I am looking for an aftermarket pitman arm, drag link and steering arm for lifted applications. I saw the stuff at 4wheel parts but wanted to see if I could find them cheaper somewhere else Also they did'nt have a price for the pitman arm. Also if I get the drag link that was adjustable would I need a new pitman arm? I plan on going with 6" or 8" of lift.

    Thanks

    I'd try to avoid the drop drag link. The way it is designed makes doing an alignment harder. Since it has the bend in it, you can't loosen the clamps and turn the sleeve. You have to disconnect one end of the drag link and then turn the end. I got my pitman arm from 4WPW for about $80.

    I bought my raised steering arm from 4WPW. I ran it with a 6" lift. When I went to 8", I bought a drop pitman arm from them. When I added a D60 to the front, I bought a dropped drag link from them. NONE of those setups are near the quality of performance that I get with crossover steering. Do it right the first time and save some money over doing it step by step like I did.
