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.

Do you
have the same problem?

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.
