Drag Link one end is connected to the Pitman Arm, steering gearbox to the steering wheel, the other end is attached to the steering linkage, to the steering arm.
In some Vehicles, the Drag Link swings from the front to the rear of the vehicle. In them the Drag Link connects to the steering arm located at the wheel. In some Vehicles, the Drag Link will swing from right to left, and will connect to the steering arm at the wheel. Drag links can be a solid one-piece construction or an adjustable design.
