Steering wheel at 11oclock after install

By 

from Orlando, FL

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Cheap

Cons

  • Not machined 100% correct for straight steering

Best Uses

    Comments about Driveworks Steering Pitman Arm:

    This pitman arm is solid and tight and fixed the loose worn out pitman arm that I replaced. However, the steering wheel was straight prior to install and is now at 11oclock. Reason for that is due to the machining of the splines in the arm at the steering box. It is just a hair off. This makes for some frustration after install because it's quite a mess to remove the steering box again and R&R the pitman arm. I read the review prior to purchase that referenced the steering off after install, however the customer requested the least expensive parts. You get what you pay for. It does the job properly, but doesn't align properly.

    Comments about Driveworks Steering Pitman Arm:

    I put this Pittman arm on less than a year ago and after about 6 months I noticed the same play in my steering.The splines did not want to fit on the steering box and my steering wheel has been at the 11 o'clock position since installing. I recommend spending the money of a good Moog Pittman arm that will last.

    Splines not cut deep as original part

    from Indianapolis, IN

    Comments about Driveworks Steering Pitman Arm:

    This is a ok replacement to the original with the exception that the splines where it attaches to the steering box are not set as deep as the original and just barely goes on far enough to allow the lock washer and nut to engage all the threads. This may be to save cost or just a method of fitting many models perhaps? It did set my steering draglink slightly lower as well and required me to have an alignment done to correct for the slight geometry change. I would suggest that you check other brands to compare the spline depth of engagement first to minimize changes in your steering geometry and hopefully avoid having an alignment done with just a simple change of a pitman arm.

          Comments about Driveworks Steering Pitman Arm:

          I bought one of these parts for my 1992 Dodge Dakota. After installing it I noticed my steering wheel was 180* off or so. So after HOURS of trying to find out if there was any other possible way to get it on there wasn't. The splines make it fool proof. Finally I discovered after trying a different brand that the grooves in the original part were not made in the right spot. The manufacture messed up and makes this part faulty! DO NOT BUY. I will say I returned this part to Advance Auto and they refunded me and got me hooked up with another brand.

              A:

              It is better to replace the pitman arm and idler arm as a set. As the idler and pitman arms are the links that connect your steering box to the center link which in turn rotates the hubs on the arms causing the vehicle to turn. The idler arm simply supports the other side of the center link. If there is free play in any of these parts your steering will be sloppy.

              This is because one is a 3 groove and one is a 4. You have to check your exisiting one to be sure you get the right one for your application.
