    Pitman arm nut size?

    Hey guys, does anyone know what size socket is needed to remove the nut on the pitman arm? I thought that it measured 1 1/4", but that socket size was to small. I'm installing a lift on a 95 YJ, and I need to get the new drop pitman arm on.

    Thanks

    Not sure of the nut size, but I've found that a large crescent wrench will take it off, even when it was installed with an impact wrench.

    Not sure on the nut size either, but when you "get the nut off" be prepared for the Pitman arm.

    Not allways the case, but the nut is usually the easy part.
    Last YJ pitman arm I came across had to be cut off with a Cut-Off Wheel

    either 32mm or 36 mm.. There were diffrent sizes for diffrent years..
    Eaiset way to remove stuck pitman arm without a puller is leverage...
    Use a 3 or 4 foot piece of pipe as leverage on the pitman arm should just pop right off with all that leverage..

    Ummm, pitman arm puller usually works best... You can borrow it from Autozone, or just buy one. They are about $8.00 and work on other things like steering stabalizers, TRE on steering...

    Thanks guys, I picked up a 36mm socket when the 1 1/4" didn't work, and that was way to big. At the time I thought that the 32mm socket would be to small, but it looks like I'll make another trip to Sears! I'll pick up a larger crescent wrench while I'm at it! As far as getting the pitman arm off, I have a gear puller that should do the trick!

    Thanks for the help!

    Well, I picked up a 32mm socket and found that it's to small as well. Luckly I also picked up a 12" crescent wrench so that should take care of the nut! Sears doesn't carry a 1/2" 34mm socket, any ideas on who does?
    Thanks again for your help!
