I have a 65 Malibu SS convertible and the steering box is 4 1/2 turns LTL. I would like to change it to the 2 1/2 turn box.
What is the normal swap involve and what is the best box to use?

Any box that is 2 1/2 turns lock to lock won't have enough turning radius for an A-body. You'll lose your ability to make U-turns if that matters to you.

Chevelles boxes need 87˚ of travel which is exactly what Jeep GC & Impala SS/Caprice boxes have & made them such a popular swap.
