Is there a shorter Pitman arm I can use?

Is there a shorter pitman are that can be used on the Samurai, then the stock one thats there. I have a yota swap with a high steer and the drag link is hitting the tierod. I don't want to move the steering box nor do I want to more the whells back an inch.

Will anything else work?

pitman arm

If you shorten the arm it will not have the traval you need to steer lock to lock.

It sounds like a perfect time to add some power steering to your zuke.

Do it your self with two pass. side arms. Just flip one and weld a 1/2" plate gusset inbetween. I run this setup and has worked for three years. With Toys you need a 1" longer pitman arm for the throw, left to right.

Do you drive your zuk on the street? If so ,do your self and everyone else and do it right by moving the steering box. This is for safety reasons,otherwise the welded arm will work for ya
