GenRight Twisted Pitman Arm w/Removal Tool

3 reviews Write a Review

This is the innovative Twisted Pitman Arm with Removal Tool from GenRight Off Road!

This will correct the stress caused by issues inherent in long travel suspension systems using heims.

How? We twisted (or rotated) the drag link mounting surface to allow the heim to work within it's range of motion.

We also created a stronger double shear type design pitman arm that uses a beefier 5/8" size Grade 8 bolt that is stronger.

Why do I need a Twisted Pitman Arm? (Click to find out)

This is a perfect compliment to any long travel suspension and is designed to be used with hi-steer type arms on Dana 60's, 44's or 30's. This Heavy Duty product will hold up to big tires and off-road abuse. In fact, you find this same product on Jordan's 4585 MOD Class racer. Got a hydraulic ram? It will work with that too.

Still not sure you need this? You will find this product on every one of our GenRight Jeeps!


  • "Twisted" to utilize the full range of motion (down travel) in a heim rod end.
  • Laser cut & CNC formed from 1/4" thick steel plate.
  • Design is puzzled together for maximum interlocked strength.
  • Stronger than stock Double Shear design (1-3/4" wide).
  • Includes 5/8" size Grade 8 mounting hardware.
  • Tapered spline is TIG welded into the GenRight Twisted arm.
  • 5-1/2" center to center (same as stock TJ or YJ).
  • Includes Pitman Arm Removal Tool # STK-2520.
  • 100% Made in U.S.A.!

Why do we use Heim rod ends? We prefer the heims over the standard or heavy duty "tapered style" tie rod ends because, over the years we have seen the taper of the tie rod end SPLIT too many steel knuckles! This is the exact same steering set up we have used on our GenRight Jeeps and Ultra4 race buggies for years, and it works great!

Important Notes:

  • Designed to work with our frame side trac bar mount(s) TJ/LJ: FSM1004 & YJ: FSM1005 for ideal steering geometry (and eliminate bump steer).
  • If used with the GenRight Hi-Steering and trac bar, we have been able to move the front axle forward up to 5" on a TJ (or LJ) and 4" on a YJ.
  • Once installed, YOU MUST cycle the front suspension AND steering to make sure the hi-misalignment heims do not exceed their range of motion which would damage the steering components!
  • Requires a 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 (BDL-9200) to clear the bottom of the radiator.

    Twisted pitman arm

    Posted by Keith Johnson on Nov 11th 2022

    This is the coolest most thought up design for a pitman arm. It is super beefy and makes a stock arm look like a twig. Install is easy. If using the genright chromoly drag link and tie rod kit you will need a special for heim to mate to this pitman arm which genright carries. I highly recommend this bad ass pitman arm

    Perfect for LCG

    Got big axles, pushed forward and low center of gravity? This is the trick. I saved so much space by using this pitman. Awesome design.

    The Twisted Pitman Arm by Genright is Genius! We run it with our PSC Big Bore Box on the Silver Bullet LJ we just built. We are running 12" coilovers which gives us longer travel over the stock suspension. The twisted pitman arm allows us to get the full range of motion out of the Heim end of our Draglink when the suspension cycles. Works perfectly and is beefy!!
