straight pitman arm

I just finished installing the teraflex high steer kit, i had to fab up a track bar that mount on top of the steering stabilizer mount. After does that my angles are a little off, not by much but just not perfect. I have the stock pitman arm on but it would be good if it did not have that drop in it. Is there a pitman arm that is straight that will work with the jeep that i can buy. Thanks

Have you tried heating up and bending the stock pitman arm?

that sould work. but take care not to brak anything when you remove the pitman arm.

if the angles arenĀ“t correct there will be some steering problems.

theres no way you can bend a pitman arm, i tried. I just ended up cutting a slit and smacking the crap out of it with a sledge, and finally when it moved, i welded the slit closed. Its good now
