Anyone here in the Denver metro area able to taper pitman arms? I have a Saganaw arm that I need to have tapered to an fj80 drag link end.. Any help is greatly appreciated :bowdown:

Thanks, Brian

Most machine shops can do it but if you bought the reamer you could do it too!


Just looked....here is one on Fleabay right now cheaper than I can get it!
1.20 reamer (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1-200-TPF-BALL-JOINT-TIE-ROD-TAPER-REAMER-5912-/200520806048?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2eaff8aea0#ht_542wt_1165)

Thanks UB!! I can send it to Luke at 4x4 labs and he will do it for $20.00. Since I do not envision ever using it again, I am hesitant to shell out 75 clams to buy one.. I will call some local machine shops and see what they will charge to do it, just thought someone else here might have had this done locally and point me to a good shop.

Thanks again!!
