Mopar Steering Upgrade

Can you tell me if #52122362AF is the latest and greatly version of this Mopar kit?

I know there has been a few revisions over the years

I also want to make sure this kit will work with my 4.5" Fabtech lift using the drop pitman arm, where the inner tie rod is mounted from under the pitman arm (and not from the top like the stock setup)

PM a with a price please....need to order one soon!

The newest PN# is 52122362AI and that is what we are supplying.

I would suggest to go with the Pure pitman arm since it has the angle built into it to match the angle that the new TRE on the draglink has.

Can you shoot me a price quote on the steering setup?

"The taper is flipped so the TRE is now located on the bottom side versus the top side as was the OEM condition. This improves the drag link operating angles"

With my Fabtech drop pitman arm that I am using now, the TRE is located on the bottom side......

Do you know if I can just buy the 08.5+ tie rod ends and the tie rod?

I am going with the Thuren draglink and don't want to waste money on the Mopar 08.5+ drag link, if I dont have to.....

All of those parts may be available seperately but it may end up costing more in the long run.

Skyd,

Do you know if the Pure pitman arm works with the upgraded Mopar (part number 68170214AA) steering box?

Thanks

Unfortunately I don't know of any company that makes a drop pitman arm specifiaclly for that new box. There may be another pitman arm application that fits that sector shaft size but nothing that I have come across yet.

Thanks for your help anyway. I'll be looking out for Pure or someone else to come up with something.

They are available here with or without the pitman arm: Mopar 08.5+ Steering Upgrade Kit

You will also need to replace your stock stabilizer with an 08.5+ version. We don't sell the expensive Mopar unit but we have 3 other options on our website.
