pitman arm reamer

Just wondering what type of reamers you use to ream out a pitman arm. Can you just use a standard 7 degree tierod reamer?

It's the same, just deeper for the high angle Chevy ends

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

You just ream it further. The taper degrees stay the same but the two holes get proportionally larger.

There are two common tapers for domestic TREs. One is 1.5" per foot taper and the other is 2". Neither is 7. 1.5" per foot is slightly over 7, so the commonly used Snap-on reamer isn't quite accurate.
