what pitman arm for crossover steering?

I got a deal on a used crossover steering kit but it has no pitman arm. The guy told me I am supposed to use the correct pitman arm for whatever lift I have. I don't think this is correct because the pitman arm in the kit needs to be the right drop to stay in line with the trac bar. Does anyone know if the stock or any of the drop pitmans arms out there are the same? Couldn't find any online I may have to call one of the suppliers for these kits, just cant find a brand anywhere on any of the pieces

99-04 trucks came with cross over steering so I'm not too sure what you are after. However, after entering "pitman arm" in the Top Gun Customz search, then filtering down to Fords, I found this:

Top Gun Customz

Karl and his 2003 6.0

Barefoot Accelerator Pedal
TRICO Force wiper blades
Yellow Military Aircraft Valve Stem Caps
Offensive "Stick Family" Decal
Big Ol'Honkin 1 1/4" Shank Receiver Hitch


WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else
hasn't already listed for their truck!

sorry, looking for the amount of drop on the pitman arms that come in the high steer crossover kits where the drag link is on top of the passenger spring used with a new aftermarket knuckle.

Check out offroad unlimited. There's a good chance the kit you're describing is theirs, and if so, they sell drop pitman arms on their site

The trac bar and draglink that I got in the kit are slightly bent would it be ok to make some out of DOM the track bar looks like solid 1.5" aluminum and draglink looks like solid 1.25 steel right now. Would be alot cheaper to get some DOM and weld in tube adapters

I don't see why not. If you feel hesitant ORU sells each piece seperately. $100 or so
