    <font color=blue>I'm going to start gathering up the rest of the parts I need for crossover this week. I have 2 2WD steering boxes, how do I tell if the threads are metric or ASE? Also, does anyone have prices or part #'s for the ORD steering arm and stud kit? I cant find it on they're site. TIA</font color=blue>

    biggray71,

    The easiest way to i.d. the difference is,

    The early standard thread box uses inverted flare to seal the fitting. Remove the fittings and when looking at the 2 ports on the box youll see a bevel facing upwards that is what the inverted flare fitting seats on.

    The later model metric box uses a special square cut o-ring to seal the fitting. The 2 ports are a straight shot in with just a small step for the oring to seal on.

    I'm not sure on the ORD stuff, so cant help ya there.

    Hope this helps, [​IMG]

    <font color=blue>OK I'll check the flares tomorow. Somewhere in my garage is the 4WD box that came on my truck, it puked PS fluid two years ago so I changed it out. I'll try to dig that up tomorow and compare. thanks!</font color=blue>
