    I got some money to start getting parts to complete my X over steering. Question for the 2wd steering box what are good years that will work with my 85'? I am planning on switching out the parts and keeping my core.

    Think it is like 81 or 82 and up are the right style boxes. The fittings changed in those years somewhere /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    if your 4wd box is still good go get a 2wd sector shaft from the yard and save yourself some coin and time.

    how does that work? I have a 2 wheel box i was going to use as a core but if i can pull a part from it and keep the box i have that would be cool. oh yea no idea how to take a box apart or what a sector shaft looks like. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    73-80 and 81-87,91 are all the same. never seen any different. the sector shaft will interchange between all of them.

    73 to 80 no O-ring fittings
    81 to 87, 91 O-ring fittings

    But like he said, sector shafts are all the same for all years 73 to 87, 91 (2wd and 4wd are different of course)

    Make sense /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    the pic is sorta confusing cause its looking straight down onto the top of the steering box. Most pics of them tend to be through the wheel well or from below.
