Pitman arm nut?

Re use one possible?, or dumb Idea?

Potentially doing a lift swap.

Also, best way to torquing it to 350lbs if a big *** tq wrench isn't readily available

I don't own. Here is an example. The Dodge's has a TSB that has you upgrade the steering as well as the pitman arm. When doing this even they do not have you replace the nut. The Superduty box and Ram box are super close in design.

The one's I have done not only are using a BD or PSC steering brace, normally a deep socket wont do, use an open end wrench with your feet against the tire usually makes it tight enough. Check it a few weeks after and you should be golden

I've heated my pitman arm up before I installed it. You can get it on tighter. Nut is fine to reuse.
