WHY ARE PITMAN ARMS IMPORTANT?

Pitman arms are used on vehicles with “box steering” systems, usually trucks and rear wheel drive passenger vehicles. Typically mounted between the steering gear and the center link, the Pitman arm creates a pivoting point.

 

Pitman arms are distinguished by their splined arms, which mesh to the steering gear. This allows them to convert torque from the steering gear into a mechanical force that permits movement of the steering linkage. Pitman arms are supported in this function by idler arms.

THE MEVOTECH EDGE

What makes our Pitman arms so great? Mevotech gives technicians the edge, by innovating every chassis component. Our engineers focus on making our parts faster and easier to install, while ensuring they are built to provide a longer service life. Employing punishing durability testing, we validate every new design to ensure you get performance you can trust.

X-FACTOR DESIGN UPGRADES

For maximum service life and durability we engineer X-Factor upgrades to keep your vehicle performing longer.

  • Greaseable Ball Joints

    Ball Joint is serviceable allowing the user to continue to grease the ball joint improving the service life of the ball joint.

  • Sintered Metal Bearings

    Bearings made of a durable sintered powder metal that leads to a longer lasting part.

  • Self-Sealing Grease Relief

    Grease relief that acts like a one-way valve allowing excess grease to flow out of the boot while preventing contaminants entering the boot.

  • Anti-Corrosion Coatings

    Corrosion resistant coatings that prevent the formation of rust for a longer part service life.

  • Higher Grade Hardware

    Hardware provided is made with a high grade and strength.

  • Ball Pin Surface Hardening

    Ball Pins are surface hardened to prevent premature wear and improve fatigue life

LABOR SAVERS

To make your installations faster, easier and protect surrounding components, we include handy Labor Savers in the box

  • Additional Hardware

    Application specific mounting hardware are included with the part to complete the installation of the part.

  • Anti-Rotation Features

    Parts engineered with anti-rotation features that speed up and give piece of mind during installation.

  • Nylon Lock Nuts

    Nuts with integrated locking feature that removes the need to align nut to install cotter pin, saving time during installation.
