system due to a change in geometry.
Whether your truck is stock height or lifted and running over sized tires,
Pitman and Idler arms have always been a problem on the steering systems of the
Chevy and GMC vehicles. The Pitman and Idler arm Support kit by Cognito
Motorsports fixes a wear problem that is present on the factory and aftermarket
steering system. This design solves the problem in an innovative way that no
one else has been able to create before. This design works so well that we were
able to obtain a UTILITY PATENT
What happens if you are
not using the Cognito Motorsports solution?
The front alignment toe
settings can not be held because of the slop in the pitman and idler arms
allowing the center link to move forward and backward. No control over the toe
setting means that your front tires will experience irregular and premature
wear. When the center link swings toward the back of the truck, it is also
swinging up in an arc. The center link swinging up increases the tie rod angle
and can cause tie rod breakage. Most tie rod problems actual originate from
pitman and idler arm problems.
