Longest Drop Pitmann Arm available?

I have a 6" lift and my drop pitmann arm isnt long enough...there is sort of awkward twisting of the ball joint on the bottom of my pitmann arm when i turn left and right....i know it will hold...but id like to get the angle a little less severe for the sake of that joint

I would contact the lift kit/steering manufacture a see what they can tell ya. I ran about the same amount of lift on my TJ, and don't recall getting any binding or issues at the pitman arm joint, but I had the stock style steering setup.

I know the problem, everything is on backwards! If you use a longer pitman arm, you need to drop the track bar mount by the same distance to keep the bump steer in check.

We need to talk. I have just the steering kit for that big of lift. And all said and done you can use stock pitman arm. As well as should help with any bumpsteer cause it will match the angle of your track bar as well. Let me know please.

Exactly. Teraflex high knuckle steer kit. 1 ton ends. And makes it all perfect for ya and probably no pitman arm needed. Please let me know I have to sell it my jeeps to low for it. Was on when I bought it.

its rock krawlers set up thats more or less a joke.

the tie rod might be OTK but the drag link is still UTK

This is JCRs 1 ton OTK kit much better angles on all the parts involved
