    Will a steering box out of a 80-88 pickup bolt right in to a 94 silverado? I need a 2wd box for x over steering, right? and 89-96 2wd pickups are scarce at the junk yard, but old ones are everywhere.

    94 is IFS? the box on my 88 worked fine for D60 swap.Just need to find correct pitman arm from Ford truck or van.Using stock arm now,will change with new crossover link. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I don't know but the late model 1500 I saw in the JY had the PS box mounted on the inside of the frame not the outside like earlier ones were. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    94 Silvarado should be IFS and the box is on the inside of frame.The CKs turn side to side ,not front to back like pre IFS.The frame is stronger on IFS trucks,don't crack like oldr ones /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    IFS trucks don't need a different box for crossover, just a different pitman arm.
