Zj Pitman arm

I am doing an soa to my 93 wrangler and was wondering what years of the zj would work for the pitman arm on the soa.

Or you could buy a drop pitman arm for around $70.

I dont think so, but honestly it would depend on what kinda shape his leaf are in. I mean if they are really saggin they will sag past it, if stiff then would sit above it. Coils are nice but I like my leafs, have been thinking about going coilover up front. Flattie if you have knowlegde on coilover conversions we need to talk.

ZJ will work , if I'm not mistaken it is a 4" drop. If your doing a SOA your more than likely gonna need a high steer bracket or knuckle, cuz the leaf spring pack gets right in the way of the drag link.

coil over conversion = easy.....its all time and money to do that......what if his leafs are in between.....normally when we soa a jeep it doesnt hit but at full flex or full lock it will and will usually limit your right had turning ablity

on mine with a 4" drop pitman the steering is acceptable. in only a couple instances when really twisted up do i lose some steering to the right.....totally liveable though.

4" drop you can find for around 40 bux and is the same as the zj arm, but i dont know the year range the OP is asking for.
