Can i use a 92' steering gear box on my 83 cj?
Of course, you can't interchange manual and power. Look them over carefully, holding them side-by-side and closely compare them. They are prolly interchangeable. These kind of parts typically are used for many years in a row because they do not need to be re-engineered very often. Go to a Jeep parts dept and ask the man to ID the part numbers. If they match, they are identical. Only thing that may change this is that in 83 it was an AMC part and in 92 it was Chrysler.

I think they're both Saginaw boxes aren't they? Power steering boxes use a different pitman arm than manual boxes so you'd need to pick up a power steering tie rod end. I believe the input shaft splines may be different also but I'm not positive. I think the manuals use a 3/4"x30 spline and the powers use a 3/4"x36 spline (I could be wrong on this it's been awhile since I messed with my steering stuff). Other than that the only other thing to make sure of, is that the power steering box and pump both should use O-ring fittings (which can be changed on the pump, or custom hoses can be made). If you're just swapping power steering box for power steering box, they will probably just swap right over. Good luck.
Jeepzilla it's not as complicated as you might think. Saginaw supplied the steering boxed and the basic design makes them very interchangable.
