    I have a 78 Jimmy.... The steering is acting relally funny... been this way since I got it 6 months ago... I trun and most of the timeit is fine.. but sometiems it feels liek I turn and it bumps... likeit' shitting a stoppingpoint then breaks free and truns again... I've narrowed it down to the steering box... I got the box off a 2 wheel drive heavy 3/4 ton truck and want to swap it into my jimmy... can I put the 2wheel drive box into my jimmy... Any forsen complictions, is my steering gonna be FUBAR'd...

    Um... yes officer I know it's too big...

    You have to use a steering box for a 4WD. The 2WD box won't work. [​IMG] (Unless you want to spend big bucks converting to crossover steering with all custom linkanges and steering knuckles).

    If Blazer 79 doesn't want it, I'll take it. Send me a Private Message if you like.
