Re: Steering Gear replacement...quick question
Yeah, tj's might even only have 1 way you can put them on. I've used the auto zone rent a tool pullers, if they break you just bring it back and get another, good chance they will break unless you buy a really good one. Good luck getting the pitman arm off. I know on my tj it took air tools and a whole lot of force to get that stupid arm off, i think we killed the original box. Heat and air are your friends getting it off. If your just junking your old box you don't have to be too wroied about heating it, if you want to keep your old box make sure you don't kill the seals with heat. The nut on the bottom of the box is a 32mm. This might be one of those jobs where if it isn't going easy for the first 20 min. take it into a shop and pay for 1/2 hour labor for them to monkey with it.
