Raised steering arm and steering box support

Both came in the mail today. I installed the arm, no real problems other than getting the stinkin' cones off! That was a PIA!

Makes a huge difference though. Between that and new tie rods, it feels much more secure and stable on the road.

Any tips on installing the bolt on steering box/frame support?

Re: Raised steering arm and steering box support

BFH and heat. You aren't going to get it off without heat. There's supposedly a "sweet spot" to hit on the arm according to posts on CK5 but it didn't work on mine. I soaked mine for three weeks with PB'laster and kept trying periodically with a 18oz hammer. I didn't get it off until my Dad heated it up with the torch.

Same goes with one of my spindles and both of my balljoint sleeves.
