I thought I saw someone post this a while back (thought it was Wes)

Search does not pull it...

So for all you folks running a 70 series pitman arm - P/N?

Also, can you use it with a 60 series relay rod end?

And, can we see pics of the arm showing less droop than the 60 series pitman arm?

I am putting 60 series PS box on FJ40 and thinking about this pitman arm option...

TIA,

Is the dropped pitman arm from a 60 series going to reduce bump-steer?

Would it preferable to run this if your rig is SUA (4 inch lift)?

I wouldn't use it or a lifted su truck. Generally guys want them if they are doing a springover and there is draglink interferance with the leafs. Charla's BJ42 has the 60 arm on the 60 box with about a 2.5" lift and the draglink angle is about as good as it could be.

Here's a pic of a SO BJ74 RHD. If you really want a 70 arm, anybody with a su lifted 70 should be happy to trade you four a 60 seies one.

Too far north. Too far east.

Why not just use one of the arms used on cross-over conversions. Some examples include:

I really like the arms from Sky (installed on my 4Runner, and FJ40 with FJ60 box). I have an arm from allpro forsale if you're interested, $35.

Thanks Pappy!

Sounds like the 60 should be good for SU, so I'll check it out when I get there and see how it looks.

If I need less drop, I'll hit ya...
