    Anyone know where I can find a drop pitman and idler for 2.5-3" for my 97 GMC Sierra slt 2 door? Been searching for quite a while and can't find any. Have a diff drop coming and want to get the drop for the steering so I don't bind up.

    you dont need a drop pitman arm,if you drop the pitman arm it will do nothing but bind the idler arm.I have 3 inch keys,almost cranked all the way with extended upper control arms stock steering and no diff drop,truck rides and steers just fine.

    As far as I can tell those are the only odd angles left to bind up. Haven't put the diff drop in yet , but trimmed my droop stops about an inch and have my keys most of the way up. Have longer shocks ordered since u can feel the shocks top out when the wheel drops. I put my truck on the hoist and with suspension completely slack I have no binding of anything , CV axles are still in good angles , ball joints are acceptable, and only thing that's close to an odd angles are tie rods which is my reason for asking about drop pitman and idler, since it will drop the "steering bar" down and alleviate the tie rod angles

    That's why I was asking about a drop idler AND pitman.
