Works great, is much more affordable than some other options, and helped get rid of slop in the steering. Comes with grease fitting, bolt, and cotter pin. Just beware you will need a 33mm socket (34mm works fine also and can be rented from advance auto) and the larger pitman puller to remove the old one (with a 96 gmc truck anyway).

Unfortunately this product is more proof of cheap isnt always right. first is the ball socket, narrower than O.E. 2nd the taper was incorrect not allowing it to slide on to the pitman shaft.
because of the poor quality, had to buy from a competitor, due to vehicle being apart and store over 5 miles away.

Wrong Part

Pros

    Cons

    • Wrong hole for steering box

    Best Uses

      Comments about Driveworks Steering Pitman Arm:

      Wrong size hole for steering box bolt. Hole needed is about 1 1/8" with splines and this part is about 3/4" smooth bore. The picture shows the right one but that is not what you get. The factory nut is 33mm like another commenter mentioned. Back to Advance. I'll have to buy a more expensive brand.

        Comments about Driveworks Steering Pitman Arm:

        it looked like the original but the hole where it mounted to the steering gear was too small or not tapered right because it only went on about half as far as the one I took off. wouldn't go on far enough to thread the nut fully

        Comments about Driveworks Steering Pitman Arm:

        The splined hole is smaller than the oem, causing the arm to rest farther down the shaft than the original. The nut went on and was fully engaged when torqued. Looks like it will do the job.

                Comments about Driveworks Steering Pitman Arm:

                Tried to save a buck but I'm paying for it now. Pitman arm didn't even last 5000 miles. Now I'm working on the road and have to pay someone to replace it. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. It is junk. Stick with the higher priced brand names like MOOG or Raybestos when getting stearing components. They last as long as factory and sometimes longer.

                    This part initially fixed steering slop but the truck had the play back in a month. Inspection revealed this pitman arm was totally causing the play. It was wore out already!! Going to get the Moog to replace it.
