    What is the superlift part number for the pitman arm used for crossover steering. And what years steering box is best. I was going to get one for a 2wd 85 1/2 ton pickup.

    I have "read" that there are two different fitting sizes used on these, they changed at some time. I have never worked with swapping these so I don't know. Someone will set me straight on this... /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    get the same year range box as you have truck. if you have a 80 and older get a 80 and older box, if 81 and newer get a 81 and newer box.

    the 80 and older have a flare fitting and teh 81 and newer have a oring fiting.

    Actually, the split is '79 and '80 rather than '80 and '81. The '80-on-up boxes are also metric fittings along with the o-ring, too. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    There is also what I call a 79.5. Some 1980's models came with the 79 and earlier parts (mine did). It is something to think about. I have only had problems with power steering matching my year so far. Just an FYI.

    Never heard that. Hmmm, something new learned today. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif Funny how GM made changes in the same year on some stuff. I can't even remember off the top of my head everything GM changed mid-year with some stuff either. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
