    Anyone know what threads is on the pitman arm nut on a 2wd steering box? Mine didn't come with one and I need to pick one up at the local shop but the box is already on the truck and I don't wanna take it off :D

    It's 7/8" x 14 tpi. I got mine at the GM dealership because I couldn't find one anywhere else, including several fastener supply places.

    I bought mine at the local Ace hardware, they had a grade 8 nut, and a grade 8 locking washer in stock (I know, technically speaking there is no allowance for locking washers in the grade 8 standard, but its only holding on a pitman arm)
