My Moog pitman is coming due for a replacement. I saw that Rare is making an Extreme Duty replacement now. Has anyone tried or evaluated it yet?

Rare Parts Extreme Duty Pitman Arm 3 Master Splines # 20609

Thanks!

Checked a few sites yesterday, no prices, supposed to be out last year, this year who knows. Truck has 50,000 on it and damn the center link sure moves at the idler arm and shaft when I had it jacked up. Maybe get another 20,000 miles out of them, or not.. The idler shaft they have on their site looks a lot like the SUPERSTEER and within $10.00, call it ours when we stick a sticker on it.....

am I missing something? I see no Kryptonite pitman on Mike's site. Maybe you meant idler by mistake? Thanks anyway!!

The pitman arm is a toss up, 3 or 4 spline, do you have the old Saginaw box or the 670-680 box which I believe came equipped on the 2007 and later trucks with the new body change.

from what I've read, if you have a dmax pickup truck it's almost 100% that you have 3 splines. IIRC when I did my Moog it was 3. I suppose I could remove the locknut and Cognito brace on there now and have a look for sure.

I have a core Saginaw/Delphi box in the garage, I'll check it in a bit.

670-680 box, this is the box that had the TSB published about, lack of steering in parking lots, the 670 had the 3 bolts IIRC

You can email them and see what they tell you. They have been very responsive when I've had technical questions with my suspension.

I posed the same question to them, and they said that it will... with a slight modification to the attachment. You'll need to shim the brace out a bit to clear the arm. They sent me a shim (washer) and a belleville washer to complete this task. I am hoping to install everything this week and provide pictures. Here's their pic from in the shop:

Rare parts sent you the washer and shim?

I'd start there. Either you can get them from Rare or they can give you the specs to source them from someone like McMaster.
