all you are trying to do is remove the pitman arm from the streering box right?if so just remove the big pitman arm nut and use a puller on the pitmanb arm if you can get in thare with a long piece of pipe and a hammer or an air hammer that will work but im not shore if you have the room

Why are you pulling the Pitman arm? Is it to install a dropped Pitman arm? If so, are you still running the stock trackbar?
