D1/LHD drop arm on a RHD D90?

I'm in the process of getting my HD steering setup from RTE installed and failed to realize until now that it won't work with my ball joint pitman/drop arm. I'll need one that can be used with the tie rod end. I've found a few threads but haven't been able to nail down if an arm from a D1 or other LHD truck will work. I'd just like to confirm that it will work and that the splines are the same.

Wanted to let people know the D1 drop arm I ordered will not fit onto the steering box shaft. The output shaft of the box is tapered and the drop arm is not. I'm taking it to a machine shop to have it taken care of, either machine out the drop arm or machine down the output shaft of the box. Hopefully it's not too much of an issue.

Got it through a place online (cant remember the name) as the shipping was quick and cheap. Paying the price now I suppose. The keying on the splines is correct.
