Need this lifted F150 part

I'm trying to help a buddy of mine out, he has a 98 F150 w/ a 6" suspension lift. He needs what he called a steering drop-down bracket. It's the piece that connects from the pitman arm and the idler arm to the tie-rods, to drop the tie-rods down so he can have any sort of front end alignment. Where would we find something like that??? Or is it custom fab time. Thanks!

Yeah not finding anything. Not even 100% sure on the name of the part... he knows what it looks like, but not the official name. If anyone knows what part this is and could get a part number they would be a god-send.

Superlift has the drop centerlink in their pic of the whole kit. He just needs the one piece.

Alright by what your saying,your looking for a drop pitman arm.It its a 98 f150,it uses the stock pitman arm system.You don't drop any of it because it is taken care of with the new steering knuckles.I've lifted two of them so I know the suspension on them.Are you sure on the year of the truck?Are you talking about an older f150?This was my baby

04 f250 egr delete,IDP 58v Ficm tuned,banks intercooler and piping,TSD SPD tunes,gogo DD solenoid,ITP RR kit, Fass 95g lift pump,Powermax turbo,ARP studded,08 pan and filter,6in and 35's on 20x12's with procomp traction bars
