i have an 89 crew dually 2wd and was wondering if any other 2wd steering box would fit?
Yep. I'm pretty sure they all are the same from 73 to 87 / 91. I think a few other models use them also, I pulled one off an El Camino. 2wd boxes vary from 4wd boxes with the use of different sector shafts and of course the manual boxes are different from the power streering boxes. I know different steering ratios are available from ARG, but I wonder if the factory changed those at all? Even if they did, the box would still fit the same application.
I think 1981 is when they switched the line ends to use an o-ring.
Woops, spoke too soon
I'm pretty sure there is a 3 bolt and 4 bolt version.
Maybe I should just delete my response
Does anybody have a pic to compare the 2 styles. I don't mean 4wd & 2wd but what the different styles look like. The O-ring and "flange(maybe)?? I forgot the other style.
The only difference with the O-ring style and the older style is the hose fittings. Maybe someone can take a close up shot of the ports for you. The exterior of the boxes look the same.
well i was thinkin i need to replace my 89's box and a new rebuiklt one from a part store is about $200... and i see them for sale on here from time to time... hahha and it got me to thinkin i didnt know if they were all the same or not
You used a box of an El Camino ? Is your truck right hand drive ? El Camino should be like my Chevelle and mount on the inside of the frame . Shouldn't mount on the outside on a truck frame , unless you put it on the passenger side .
