Is the current angle okay, or should i try to cut into my firewall and flip the pitman arm?


You may be OK.. Might have a little bump steer.. You can't flip the Pitman arm.. It will turn the wrong way.. You need to make sure what way it is turning now..

I have never set one with that much angle.. You may have to try it.. Just watch you from end don't go into a death wobble.. I have seen some on some real good angles already..
