        Comments about Driveworks Steering Idler Arm:

        this part is indicated as "exact" fit but is not, the one on passenger side is Idler Arm PN:19178433, drivers side is Pittman Arm PN:19168944. Please make a change in compatability for future customers, but...the store on Nogalitos in San Antonio is really awesome!

        • Q:

          Do you have to replace pitman arm when you replace idler arm?
          Asked on 3/12/2015 by Bruno from United States

            A:

            Hi Bruno, it's actually a good question! You no need to replace the Piman Arm when the Idler Arm replacement. Idler Arms and Pitman Arms are part of your steering system that links your steering box to the center link, and then on to the hub assemblies. The Pitman Arm, also known as the "steering arm," is the main player while the idler arm supports the other side and allows the proper movement to take place when you turn the wheel. Replacing an idler arm will not affect or physically change the alignment settings themselves. If the alignment was set correctly before then just replacing the loose part is okay.

            A:

            Get anybody to turn the steering wheel while you try to grease it. Or get weight off the wheels and you move the tire with your foot. Or try with pneumatic grease guns that can put a lot more force into the fittings. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.
