As everyone who has ever lifted a Jeep Wrangler knows, when
you hook the steering back on most of the range of motion is just about
gone.What GenRight did was twist the
pitman arm so that It literally gives the ball its range of motion back by
resetting it to a neutral position.
We created a stronger double shear pitman arm using a 5/8”
Grade 8 bolt which is way bigger than what’s originally there. It works well with long-travel suspensions
and hi-steer setups because as the tie-rod comes up and the arm rotates, it
creates clearance for the tie-rod when a normal drop pitman arm would just bash
up against it.
This is a perfect solution for any
long travel suspension and is designed to be used with hi-steer type arms
on Dana 60's, 44's or 30's. It’s engineered to hold up to big tires and
off-road abuse. It’s laser cut and CNC bent from 1/4" thick steel plate
and puzzled together for maximum interlocked strength.
Got a hydraulic ram? It will work
with that too.
It requires the use of heim rod
ends which we prefer over standard or heavy duty "tapered style" tie
rod ends after seeing the taper on the tie rod end split too many steel
knuckles! This is the exact same steering set up we have used on our
GenRight rigs for years, and it works great!
It is available with a tool we made that is exactly the same
size nut as what holds the pitman arm onto the steering box. Simply thread the
tool in to pop the pitman arm off.

Some notes to keep
- Designed to work with our Hi-steer tie rod and
drag link steering kit (STK-8750 or STK-8625). Converting to Hi-steering
requires that the trac bar location and length match the drag link to eliminate
bump steer! Please use the GenRight frame side trac bar mount(s) TJ: FSM1004
& YJ: FSM1005 for ideal geometry.
- Requires a heim (not a tie rod end)
7/8" shank x 3/4" bore heim with hi-misalignment spacers that reduce
to a 5/8" bore (sold separately).
- Requires a 1" body lift to
clear the bottom of the radiator tank.
- For Jeep Wrangler CJ-7, YJ, TJ, and
LJ.Not for the Jeep Wrangler JK or JL.
