Where to find a toyota pitman arm for a 57 F100

I would like to do the Toyota power steering conversion this year on my 57. I see that CPP still sells the 53-56 pitman arm, but I don't see that they sell the one for our trucks anymore. Do any of you know where I can purchase one?

Black58; I purchased mine from Toyota Flat Pitman Arm | Pitman Arms | WFOConcepts.com Had to talk to them on the phone but they set-up the drag link side to match my drag link taper. Have not driven it yet but it works.
Good luck keep us posted.

CPP still sells them. It is more then half way down. www.classicperform.com/NewProducts/Misc/Misc.htm

It is hidden on their misc page. The last I looked Mid Fifty still sold them too.

However I would definitly buy the one listed above. It looks more stout and the price is similar or slightly cheaper.

If you can wait a few weeks I might have the whole set to sell.

Teddy what info do I need to tell them so they get the right taper? Is there a specific guy to ask for? I'm currently doing the Toyota conversion on my 57. Thanks.

tavo; I don't remember the details, what I did was call them and told them what I was doing and gave them the measurements of my old drag link taper. the length and large and small diameter. The person who took my call was very helpful and handled it from there. Cost was ~ 70.00!
Sorry I could not be more helpful.
My memory is------ what was I saying
