3in seems really short. The one I have is 5 center to center and I have been wanting a longer one. Wanna trade? Lemme know if you want to get rid of the one you've got.

Three to four inch?


That is pretty short....not going to give you a lot of travel..


Is your steering gear mounted up front, conventional saginaw conversion style, or something else?


Shortest arm that I have/ have seen was 4.75-5", center to center....I can look in the morning, but that is a pretty short...

Post up pics of your Saginaw pitman arm, and what it came off, if you know!

Take the lead there Hawk!

As promised. ;)

Not sure where it came from but it conveniently has the hole for the stock stabilizer. Anyone know where this mystery arm came from?

My prob is that my turning radius is way wide and getting a longer arm seems like the easiest solution. Not sure what box it is and I havn't checked the lock to lock ratio cuz I'm lazy and afraid it'll tell me I need a different box. So, would you recommend the longer arm Poser?

Hijack over. :D

here is a pic of mine yours would be better on mine i moved the front axle forward 4" now when axle articulates hits tie rod. i think this is off a jeep but not sure the guy i bought the set up from built nothing but heeps so that is my guess the box is a 4 bolt 4 turn. regardless to what i get hawk you can have mine just pay for the ride.

Not sure if it would help you any, but I have one off a Scout/Saginaw box thats pretty long. Apparently, I'll need something shorter when I do my P/S conversion this winter, but at this time, not sure what will work for me. Yours for the ride. Al
