    I found a bunch of 2wd boxes at the junkyard today, but they all had the lines removed and it is very sandy here /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif. Is there a good way to flush and clean them out if I pick one of these up?

    Also do I need the pitman arm for crossover or do I "have" to but a new arm anyway?

    Thanks

    I think the only way to clean it out would be to take it apart and clean it out.Also there are 2 different box types,the early and later model version.The difference is the power steering lines.

    And you will need a different pitman arm /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
