1970 Chevelle Power Steering rag joint

Hello all,

I am getting ready to install a jeep box on my Chevelle - it has no power steering currently. Since I am replacing the gearbox, do I need to drop the steering column to replace the rag joint? If I do not have to that is nice. Let me know what you all think.

Thank you!

No when you drop the manual steering box swap the new one then. You will need to change lines/pump or use adapters for the lines, change the pitman arm as well since you are going to power. Make sure your pitman has the right diameter and spline count for the Jeep box

Yup no need to do anything to the steering column. I removed my manual gearbox and rag joint all as one unit and installed the new power gearbox and rag joint all as one unit with no problems.
