Idler Arm / Pitman Arm

Well now that I've finished the suspension portion of my project, I'm on to the steering. I have a new centerlink, inner/outer tie rods for both sides, adjusting sleeves, all bushings, and an idler arm. I assume that the Pitman arm does not need to be replaced as I can't find the part anywhere? Can anyone advise? Also, the idler arm goes on the passenger side correct? It's hard to tell with about an inch worth of old grease on the whole setup...

For what it's worth, I replaced all ball joints with Moog, Moog coils, Bilstein shocks, Autozone bushings for the suspension
