    not sur about the arm but you dont need a new box. you can get a drop pitman arm and install it on your box the way it is.

    All you need is a drop pitman arm. No need to open the box at all on the IFS trucks

    Yes the IFS trucks steering boxes are up inside the frame. And they steer left to right instead of front to back.

    The Ford 60 steer just like the Chevy's on the driver side. But when you put them on a IFS truck you can't hook up the steering unless you go to Crossover.

    Did I confuse you?
