I have a 1984 gmc 1 ton pick up. It needs an Idler arm and a pitman
arm. The pitman arm looks like it needs a puller to get it out of the
power steering box, but the Idler arm looks like I can do it with a
pickle fork. Anyway, if I do manage to get it off, I presume the nut
that comes with it will hopefully press it in, then the cotter pin and
Everything went smoothly. I marked the position of the Idler arm, and
went exactly where it was b4. Now for the pitman arm and left upper
ball joint. It looks like I need a puller to take it out of my power
steering box and a pickle fork for the other end of the pitman arm. For
the right upper ball joint, it looks like the 4 bolts on top will press
it in. I guess I should torque the 4 bolts in? I notice that my Lower
Ball joints are pressed in. Anyway thanx 4 your help...bob
