    Changed a pitman arm in my budy's '94 silverado and it took a little while and the hardest part was getn the steering shaft lined up correctly so the steering wheel would be staright when it was all connected back to the steering box. Be sure to have a jaw puller as well to pull the pittman arm off the steering box and the other end off the center link. Other than that its pretty straight forward and comes off and on the way it looks.
