Yeah, that's a steering box and pitman arm. Are you switching from power to manual steering? Or just fixing your worn out gearbox?

My first RBV had manual steering (grunt), which of course meant that my sweetie would not drive it. OTOH, I have stronger arms. :-)

I had a power steering gear box with out the pump. its a race only truck and I'm not running a pump. I don't think it will be any harder than using it like that.

Yeah it turns easy. Not sure if I can change it with my header on since my headers go over the frame

I had to remove the header so I could get the steering shaft back on. it turns a lot easier than before.
