ChaddG don't mess around with the cheap arm puller. Get the super heavy duty one.
>>tighten it as tight as you can.
>>smack the screw of the puller, <on the head> with a large hammer.
>>repeat.
after a day of messing with mine, some guy gave me that advice and it popped off in 2 tightenings.

brs256 future reference ... you can rent a pitman arm puller for about 15 from local autoparts store chain .... but don't use it to install a drop arm

00silverTJ If your uncle is skeptical about the advice here, you should post a pic of your steering linkage. You will get more feedback as to why you are good without the DPA.

Two tools for servicing pitman arm, with one used for the drop version.

no need to change the pitman arm. in fact, if you do, you'll have some lovely bumpsteer and poor driveability characteristics.
