I just replaced the power steering box on my '91 recently. I want to say that the pitman arm nut is 1-5/16" but I just can't say for sure.

According to this chart, it would have to be either 32MM or 1-5/16" for the nut.

I don't remember when I did my XJ to ZJ pitman arm (funny, I too had to borrow the socket from work because I didn't have one the right size), but I believe it was 33mm...

I just brought home a whole set... :-)

*** Max beat me to it- looks like 1 5/16 = 33.3 mm, so my 33mm wasn't too far off- I know I used the metric set because it was there and had all the sockets ***

I know for a fact that I don't own a 33MM socket (I've never seen one either, but I'm not saying they don't exist) but the socket I used did fit properly.

Hey, I am going on spongy grey cells from about a year ago. maybe it was a 32mm. I know I don't own anything near that big- I borrowed a set from the truck shop at work (we have a fleet of 16 big rigs). I know I used a metric set because they said I could borrow that one as long as I needed b/c they hardly ever used it! I know I got my arm off without too much trouble (I also used a pitman arm puller from Autozone tool rental).

I think it's pretty "gray" for all of us that may have done it a while back.

I was hoping that maybe between your experience & mine we might be able to help him nail it down by way of the process of elimination.

Getting older (like me ) sure doesn't help........

I also recall it being 1-5/16". Well, at least, I bought a 1-5/16" socket for something because it is in my tool box. I don't know of anything else I would use that size for.

1-5/16th or a 33MM is correct. I did my lift 2 days ago.
Remmember to PB blast the pitman arm if you want it to come off without cutting or breaking the puller.

Max is a trusted source, and usually has the answer or good idea for just about everything jeep related, his posts have saved me many times.
Thanks

Yup, it is 33mm, but I also have a 1 5/16 to get the job done. It's a 'tad' bit sloppy, but it works.

That sounds good. According to the coversion chart I linked to earlier, 1-5/16" is 33.3MM, so what you're explaining sounds 100% accurate.
