**** pitman arms. Just, **** 'em.

The steering box on my Jeep is leaking pretty steadily now, so it's time for a swap.

Pitman retaining nut came off just fine, but the arm? That ****er isn't going anywhere. Covered it in PBlaster, let it sit for a day, came back with a puller. Got it about halfway off, and now it's not going anywhere. Cranked down on it until I could not pull any more. Got a bully bar, pulled THAT until it won't move any more. Hit it with a hammer. Now I'm afraid that I'm going to break the puller, so it's sitting, soaking in more PBlaster with the puller on as tight as possible.

I'm kind of afraid to see it actually come loose.

It's got so much grease, leaked fluid and PBlaster on it that I'd have a 50/50 chance of just burning the whole Jeep.

But if it's not off when I get back from work, I might try anyways.

Worst case scenario, I sawsall it in half and buy a new one.

Here's the trick, hit it on both sides with two hammers at the same time. It'll pop right loose. Sometimes it takes a few strikes.

Hey! That's enough outta you.

Plus, at 14 years old in Septembr, it's only required 7 new non-wear parts-and five of them I've broken. (Wiper motor, failed of its own accord, two radiators-one I broke by dumping pure coolant into it, one failed on its own, one water pump also killed by the pure coolant, steering box and steering stabilizer, failed on account of larger tires, sway bar links, stock ones broken by lift, and rear main seals)
