Question about 1989 GMC C1500
I found out today that my pitman arm on my truck are bad and or the bushing I think the guy said was gone or just about gone. Anyway I am picking up an new pitman arm and what ever else goes with it and I need help or advice on whether or not to do it myself or just take it to a mechanic friend who knows how. If I do it myself what steps do I need to take to do it properly? Please help I dont exactly have a lot of maoney to take it to my mechanic friend or anyone for that matter.
Pitman arm? you need to replace the "idler arm" also. thats a pretty good job you will need a pitman arm puller and an impact wrench. then you will have to loosen the gear box to turn it about 25 degree to get to the bolt on the arm. then youl need a pickle fork to remove the tie rod. im asuming this is a 4x4 hope this helps good luck man
