    I haven't done it but I am sure you'd need a similar year to yours to get right hose connections. I think 2wd truck box. Was a write up on this a while ago. http://coloradok5.com/crossoversteering.shtml
    Hope it helps /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    they changed the power steering lines in 80 or 81, you have a 87 so get a 81 to 87 2wd box. if you can't find one, you have to change the power steering lines to work with the older box

    just take the bolts out of the back of the power steering pump and a clamp on the frame /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    i miss typed it before, if you can not find a 81-87 box you need the lines and box from a 73-80
