PITMAN ARM REPLACEMENT

1999 Chevrolet Tahoe • Automatic •

In response to earlier question: I have the pitman arm puller and the arm just wants to spin right now I have locked between two blocks of wood and two vehicles and it is providing a great amount of resistance, is this normal.

You probably have some rust holding it on have used any good penetrant yet?

Also you still have it hooked up to help prevent the arm from turning?

Hi guys. If the pitman arm is being replaced, cut through it with a cutoff tool. It will crack open when you get about 90 percent of the way through.

That's a great idea caradiodoc if it's being replaced and not just being taking off to service the steering box. Thanks for the input.
