Help with pitman arm 2005 GMC Sierra 2500hd

Recommended Posts

Hi I've been trying to replace the pitman arm on my gmc Sierra 2500hd for several days now. I'm using the moog 4 master spline pitman arm and no matter what I try it will not go any further on the steering box there is about a 1 inch gap between the pitman arm and the steering box. I know this has been discussed before but I cannot find anything to help with this problem. Any advice will be appreciated

Well, this turned out to be a job where an adjustable wrench was the right tool.
BC I wasn't about to go buy a 33mm box wrench.

I cleaned up the threads a bit with a wire wheel on a drill. Ran the nut on with the adjustable to make sure it went on smoothly.

Then put the lock washer on and worked the nut as tight as I could with a 2' pipe on the end of the wrench.

Barely got a full thread out of the bottom of the nut. But it's tight. Hit it with a little red thread lock too.

This front end rebuild has been a pain in the dick from the beginning.a93a52be5da7787cd09af83e8eb90cb1.jpge381f0a838c4b74c00851c548ea2d573.jpg0d5c96212afd91f3b4e7689126a7be2e.jpg
