The pitman arm connects the steering gear to the center link. There are two kinds of pitman arms, non-wear arms that have no moving parts, and wear pitman arms that have a ball stud and socket. One end of the pitman arm has a splined hole that fits on the steering gear sector shaft. The other end of the non-wear arm has a tapered hole to accept a tapered ball stud from the center link. Non-wear pitman arms are generally not replaced unless damaged in an accident or if the tapered hole becomes damaged. The ball stud and socket can become worn on wear pitman arms.
