A 3/4" Grade 8 bolt runs through the joint and the pitman arm...you have to drill through the pitman arm since its tapered to install it.

3/4" grade 8 fine thread bolt at the pitman arm end. You will need to drill out your pitman arm. There isnt enough clearance at the knuckle side to use a Ballistic joint at that location. Also your factory rod end is built with a long bolt that runs through the knuckle aswell as the bottom rod end. We did some testing with some other rod ends but found the OEM peice to be the must suitable solution. The rod end isnt the weakness, the factory adjuster is the failure point....
