Hello: Can a manual pitman arm be used on a power steering car? If not, I would appreciate knowing why. I have a later Trans Am quick ratio steering box on my '68 Camaro sub frame I am using on another brand car. I have the longer steering arms on it and was wanting to install a shorter pitman arm to slow the steering down some. Thanks, Larry

I believe you will find that the splines are different. This is why the 605 box is popular for PS conversions. Its spline is the same as manual.


Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.

I know this is an older thread, but you might go over to David Pozzi's great site and look around it.
