Here's a quick picture of the tail lights in the dark
Removed my stock steering this morning. I went to a shop that has done work on my family's vehicles and he impact gun'd the pitman nut off in no time. I slipped him a 20 because I know I'll be back later for more favors loosening stuck bolts
After I got home I was able to get the arm off without too much trouble which was a huge relief. Advanced Auto rental puller and the handle of a highlift jack over my ratchet did the trick.
So I got the Currie steering installed, dropped pitman arm replaced with stock and headed to the dealership for alignment... $20 out the door
They did however confirm that I do in fact need a new steering gear box because mine has too much play so I might look into the Durango swap once I'm at college.
It's so nice to not swerve every time I hit a bump... first time not having bump steer.
I plan on starting the Aussie install tomorrow morning and if I have time I'm replacing all my fluids (new oil, topping coolant, brakes, steering, changing t case, transmission and of course the front diff)
