    OK,

    Here is the question, does anyone or has anyone replaced the 4wd steering shaft out of a 4wd box into a 2wd box, and if so, where did you get the 2wd shaft from?

    Second question, will a 2wd steering box from a 73 or later 2wd GM or Chevy truck work on a 72 first gen blazer?

    Or will a Ford 2wd steering box work on a 72 chevy first gen blazer?

    Exploring my options for the crossover steering setup.

    I already have the milled passenger side knuckle, and the steering arms for both sides, now I have to come up with the 2wd box and the heim joints, and the tubing to finish the setup. The 2wd box from Adanced is $160.00 and I was looking for a cheaper alternative.

    I saw a bunch of 2wd 73 and later boxes at the junk yard last weekend, but I am not sure if they will work, and or if the Ford boxes will work.

    Anyone have any answers?????

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Robzilla

    I used a 2WD steering box off of a '74 C10 on my '72 truck, so I know it'll work if you want to go that route.

    I got Matt at West Texas to change shafts for me when he did the hydro-assist convert. Might want to give him a call. He was really helpfull and I'm sure he knows all about what fits where, he can even sell you the shaft to convert your box...
