Customer Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product? Let one of our experts answer it for you!

We will respond with an answer ASAP.

I have manual steering will the pitman arm work?
No, only works with power steering.
What do I need to make this lift kit work on a manual steering system?
Unfortunately Tuff Country does not offer a drop pitman arm that will work on the manual steering box. You can either replace the steering box with a power steering box or there are a few other companies out there that offer a manual drop pitman arm.
