    Does anyone know offhand, what year they changed the thread size for the steering box hoses? My 89 is leaking bad!:eek1: I have a 75 and 79 here, but i think they are both the different hose ends. Just need the plow truck back up fast.

    I believe they changed it when they changed the front clip.

    Where's it leaking? It may be easier and quicker to rebuild it. Just a thought.
