    That is the idler. You want the pitman arm also?

    From the QA1 pic, it looks like they moved the idler arm mount forward 1" or you could correct it with a +1" idler arm. Hard to tell from the pic as it is not shot perpendicular to the center link. They could not move the steering as it would affect the existing steering shaft length.

    Well I have installed the moog idler, so I figure that is not the problem.
