Ttb pitman arm

I have a 96 eclb f250 and I have my steering box out due to a nasty crack. Well the pitman arm will not come free even with a blue wrench, so new pitman arm it is. Now I know if you do a d60 you should do a f350 pitman arm but what about on a ttb? In the future (probably a year plus) I'm going to swap a d60 in. Should I put the 350 one on to save money in the future? I know it won't help me now with turning. I'm also running a 33x12.5 tire.

it will make it steer quicker and unless the pump is in perfect condition may be a little hard to turn at idle

The 250 arm can work with the dana 60 but the turning ratio is reduced ,this is well documented . The 350 arm is a tad longer and obviously for a reason .
I changed to the 350 arm a year later after the axle change and it improved the turning radius as I expected but what I didn't expect was the steering wheel alignment was about 60 degrees out .The 60 axle is simple to align per say and all I did was turn the drag link adjuster till the steering was centered and this job was finished .
I would think a 350 arm on a ttb is too much "geometry " ,and may just bite you where you don't want it to

Mine has a terrible turning radius I must add, I could'nt bust a u turn with 4 lanes and a median to save my life without having to use reverse
