I used a pitman arm from a 78 bronco on mine. Yes, the spline count was the same but it was way too small for the shaft on the B2. Had to file the splines by hand and file the bastard splines out. Took me about 2 hours of filing and test fitting. The pitman arm is a LOT flatter and not near as much drop, along with being around an inch longer.

what year bronco? Unless it doesn't matter, but I'm needing one for a 80-96 F150/bronco. If you've got one to sell, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

I think I have a stock pitman arm from an 84 F150 that I lifted back when I was driving it in high school. I'll scrouge around and see what I can find.
