SOURCE: I have a 1994 chevy k1500 4x4 and need to change pitman arm

Take the bolts out that attach the steering box to the frame and pivot the box so you can fit the puller on.
Leave the steering shaft and power steering hoses attached.
Mark the new pitman arm and old one in the same place and mark the pitman shaft to keep the same position of the new pit man arm on the old shaft as the old pitman arm.

SOURCE: replace idler arm/pitman arm

Don't worry it is not too hard if you keep at. One "special tool" that you will need is a ball joint separator to separate the ball joint on the idler arm from the steering. When changing make sure to compare your replacement parts with the original and if necessary make a diagram of how things go together. On the bottom, there is a castle nut and a cotter pin. Remove the pin and loosen the nut then use the ball joint separator to remove the idler arm. (This is the hardest part of the job.) Then remove the remaining bolts and take the part off. Before putting the new idler arm make sure that you put the new grease fitting on it (and go ahead and squirt a little grease in it even though it already has some) and in between the new ball joint and the steering there should be a plastic bearing that slips into place. It's a pretty straight forward job and once you take a good look at it you will see what all needs to be done. Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Goodluck!

SOURCE: repair steering linkage

You'll have to rent or borrow a pickle fork and a pitman arm puller. There is more than one size of pickle fork so specify for tie rod ends. You can buy them too, about $100 for the pair and they are not vehicle specific.
Jack and block up your front end so the wheels are clear. Take the nut off the tie rod end and wedge the pickle fork between the tie rod and the drag link, rap with a hammer until it separates. Loosen the bolt on the collar and unscrew the tie rod end. Count the turns when you remove it and screw the new one in the same number of turns.Fit it into the drag link and tighten the collar and the new nut.
Take the nut off the idler arm and use the pickle fork to separate it from the drag link. Unbolt the idler arm from the frame. The new one goes on in the reverse.
You'll probably need an adjustable wrench to remove the nut from the pitman arm,it's bigger than most wrench sets. Separate it from the drag link first. Slide the puller on and tighten it up. Once it starts to turn hard, give the bolt on the puller a rap with the hammer and tighten some more. Repeat until the arm comes off. Slip the new one on and tighten.
Don't be shy when you tighten these parts because if there is play, the holes in the drag link will oval out and you will have to replace it too. Don,t use a pickle fork on the pitman arm or you will have to replace the seal in the bottom of the steering box. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: nEED TO REPLACE THE GROUND WIRE TO THE STARTER ON

The ground wire to the starter is either the webbed fine copper wire or ground cable that is directly connected to the car chassis.and the starter motor.
I believe you can see this as you open the hood of
your car. Of course, you know where your starter is located. There are two cables going to your starter. One cable comes from battery (B+), while the other goes to the chassis. You don't need a diagram to do it. Check and e-mail to us for your comments,.

I took my 98 gmc jimmy into have an alignment done on it and they told me I needed to replace a bunch of parts first. I replaced everything except the pitman arm is there a place I can go to online to...


You might want to try your local library. Many libraries have do it yourself books online. The pitman arm is the "bone" type part from just below the steering box to the rods. each end is a ball joint. Just a matter of removing nuts from the pitman arm and prying them off. They may need a little persuasion to come out they they will eventually. Good Luck.

I ned to know / see the diagram of the 2000 2500HD chevy pu . I need to get the parts for a friend he was told - he needs the pitman arm and idler arm I have not seen the truck yet but would like to see...


napa online lists two pitman arms for $49, $89 depending upon spline count. As a photo wont give you this info, it may not help...As far as I can see, they list the other components as well but I didn't look at prices. To remove the pitman arm you will need a good pitman arm puller...some of the larger parts houses rent them out. You will not get it off the steering box without one!!
good luck!
(maybe your friend will buy you a beer when you're done!!!)
need any techncal help along the way, I'm here!!
