Manual Steering

If I want to change my 1982 CJ-7 from power steering, do I have to do anything except buy and install a manual steering box? Do I have to change Pitman arm, etc.? Thanks!

Re: Manual Steering

You need a new pitman arm, and a new bottom half of the steering shaft. Why are you converting? I've got a manual box, but no pitman arm...I've got the bottom half of the steering shaft (kind has the coupler you need, but the other end is butched...) If you want 'em, send me an e-mail.

Currently looking for corporate sponsors for jeep improvements...will sell advertising space on jeep, will also sell soul/body...make an offer.
