The dropped pitman arm maintains the factory drag link angle and helps prevent loss of turning radius and overextension of the tie rod ends. Install the new pitman arm on the sector shaft and torque the nut to 200-250lb-ft with plenty of red Loctite. Reinstall the drag link, but wait until the rear is lifted and the vehicle is sitting level to center the steering wheel.
