      This would not go onto the splines all the way and the straight away is now off and I have to set the steering wheel straight.The one I removed was better that this one

      Splines not cut deep as original part

            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.

                It is just a part that is solid, so not much difference between it and oem just the price was a lot better!

                  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.

                    this is for a 2002 chevy avalanche.
                    my mechanic says i need a pitman arm.
                    why does it say the pitman arm and idler arm must be replaced as a set?

                      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.
