Pitman Arm and drag link location
 
1 Attachment(s)
It was brought to my attention yesterday that my pitman arm and drag link may be at to much of an angle. If i were to flip the pitman arm, it will hit my firewall when i turn....I had to move everything back do to the stock manifolds for the ford 400 engine exhaust manifold.....You all have any thoughts on what i should do here? 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.. :confused: 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.. :pain: I have seen some on some real good angles already.. :confused:

Depending on how much travel you have on the front axle, it may have bump steer, but if the travel is limited, then it probably wont be noticeable.
With that angle and 4-6" of travel it would definitely have some bump steer.
