        3 Top Rated Questions

        I am wanting to do a 2.5 suspension lift in my 1992 YJ; the kits do not come with a drop pitman arm with that short of a lift, do I NEED one, and will this one do? I am concerned about the range of lift for this arm (2.5-6inches)....

        • A drop pitman arm is not required but can be installed. We recommend installing with the OEM pitman arm, and only installing a drop arm if you feel it is needed after the lift is installed at 2.5" of lift.

        What size is the splined hole?

        • The Rough Country Drop Pitman Arm uses an OEM sized splined opening where the pitman arm connects to the steering box.

        Is this something that I should honestly add to a 3.25" lift?

        • Yes, the Rough Country Drop Pitman Arm can be added to a 3.25" lift if you are noticing bump steer due to the angle of your drag link.

            Not Required

            This is NOT needed unless the lift changes the connection point of the track bar on the body. This will create a bump steer if installed.

            Works like a charm.

            Did an over the leaf spring lift and ordered this to put it all back together.

            Drop pitman arm

            Works great with the 2 1/2" rough country lift. Tie rods are right where they need to be, not at an angle and no binding.

            A must have with a lift kit!

            I recently installed a 4” lift on my TJ and noticed how far my alignment was out from the lift. So I order the new pitman arm and it basically put the alignment back to its original setting. The Jeep drives so much better since I installed the arm. Be prepared to go to battle removing the original pitman arm. Need good penetrant oil, pitman arm puller and a big hammer! Great product and fit!

            It helps!

            It helped with that "bump steering" issue. On a tj with 3" lift. One thing to note tho is that even with aligning it the same as the old one, we had to reclock the steering wheel. Not a big deal, but plan on possibly having to do that.

            Necessary for 4" lift.

            Solid construction. When installed it brought everything back into line as before the 4" lift.

            Make sure to get the pitt,man arm puller(rent it). Mark the location with a paint marker to make sure you line the new one up.
