Hi! Im on my way restore my front suspension/steering components on my Chrysler 300 -64, i have been able to find the most of the parts i need, bushings, lower/upper ball joints, tie rods inner/outer, new center link, bushing for idler arm. The torsion bar parts was in good shape. The only thing that be total impossible to find and even find information about is the pitman arm. All pitman arm i have been able to see pics, information about and also avaliable is with a ball joint in the pitman arm, Chrysler 300 -64 has the ball joint in the center link and not the way around. I dont know yet if i need to change it and probably not but IF i need so than i am toasted becaise there is nowhere to find it, no info, no anything. What is it with some parts for these rare cars. See added pics from my service manual of the steering linkage.

The pitman arm on a 63 or 64 Chrysler has no moving parts. Unless the splines have been damaged, there is no need to replace or
service it.

Thank you for your answer! Exactly no moving parts and maybe its never needs to be replaced, hopefully thats true because if it needs to be replaced sometime of some reason that cant be done because this pitman arm not exist on the earth, not anywhere on the internet anyway, same problem with torsion bar parts, where ever you look for Mopar parts its only A, B, E body.

Thanks but the center link i already have a brand new one, its was pretty easy to find, also the tie rod ends i have both inner and outer. Maybe you should not replace the pitman arm on these cars, i just thinking in case of that the spline be damaged on the arm there is no replacement pitman arm to find and i have also not see a single conversation in a forum or somewhere else about it either, the only picture i have see on it is in my service manual. I dont thonk i need to replace the pitman arm now but in the future maybe and its pretty odd that you not see anything about this pitman arm anywhere because there is a lot of people working on these early mopars before -65

probably pitman arms just don't go bad unless totally destroyed by what ever means . if one would tear up a pitman , mostly likely the car is a total loss anyhow ----------------------------------------later

What Chuck said. Its a non wear part and if gets damaged you very likely need a new steering box or maybe even a new car. So don't worry about it.
