YOU WILL NEED A "PITMAN ARM PULLER".
YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE STEERING GEARBOX & ARM AS AN ENTIRE UNIT FROM THE TRUCK. BASIC HAND TOOLS ARE REQUIRED EXCEPT FOR A PICKLE FORK TOOL USED TO SEPARATE PITMAN ARM FROM STEERING CENTER LINK .

This is how I do it. I spray alot of PB Blaster all over the connection and take a large hammer and hit the side of the pitman arm and keep spraying and hitting. It'll come loose and fall off. You have to break up the rust "welding" it together.

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!

remove the large nut where it attaches to the steering box, the small nut where it attaches to the center link. you will need a pitman arm puller to get it off the steering box. before you pull it off, take note of the positioning of the arm, there are 4 possible ways to put it on and you HAVE to put it back on the same way. dont forget to get an alignment after.
