    Quick question, the high pressure line that goes from the box to the back of the power steering pump, the fittings on the pump end are the same between a 2wd and a 4wd are the steering box end fittings the same? The 4wd box is an 87 and the 2wd is an 88 burban so its the same body style. Thanks.

    Yep, they should be identical. Only difference is the sector shaft.

    but in 1980 the seats and end of lines changed design over to an O ring type and so are not normal flared seat design anymore


    watch out on that

    But both etrucks are older than 80 so it's shouldn't be a problem. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    And the fitting can be removed as well, so it wouldn't matter if they weren't.

    The valves (under that fitting) are different depending on application.
