4 inch lift/ Pitman arm question -

I had a Rubicon 4 inch lift installed last year,,,, shoulda done it myself I reckon.... ball joints boots were torn druing install, and pitman arm nut apparently was not tightened down good enough.

Recently I had some wander in my steering, replaced the TRE's, drag link and ball joints, still had some issues,, found that to be a loose pitman arn nut,,, AGAIN...

I am thinking the splines on either the pitman arm or the steering box OR both may be stripped out, as I can tighten the pitman nut with a hammer wrench, and it only stays tight for a few days of driving.

Question --- Where can I find the proper pitman arm replacement for a 4 inch lift,,,, I am assuming the lift kit had a dropepd arm ? ? Or not?

And how about a replacement steering box?

Thanks, RB
