Re: Doing steering box upgrade and pitman arm is different size!!!
The longer arm creates a faster ratio. If your outer arms are long, then the long pitman is best, if outers are short, then the long pitman combined with a 12.7 to 1 ratio box makes the steering very quick, close to 2 turns lock to lock. This is OK but very quick and some guys don't like the steering that quick. If you have the fastest combo of parts, PLUS a small diameter steering wheel, it will be had to steer the car precisely. Stick with a 14" dia steering wheel.
