Yes, mines an '01.Did anyone install in 99-04? I blew another powersteering hose. Think I'm going to order the Lee Powersteering Conversion.
What bolts did you use? First I think I have heard of it. Maybe the '06 frame is narrower there?Gates 365892 is the hose I used on my 06 truck.
My 06 drives great with new 15 steering box installed from rockauto.
One other thing I ran into was the new steering box mounting holes are blind holes so I had to shorten new bolts up some so they wouldn’t bottom out.
GAWLY. and to think I was a bit skittish at spending $600ish.Yes I think its $1100 now. What did you use for fluid?
I have a super duty parts yard, so I don’t buy them new, but I can get you part numbers or sell you what you need.
Connection at the steering column is the same. 08 was a split year from what I have found on the splined connection, but most seem to be non-splined from late 08 on.
On edit: This is one of the first things that popped up on google for me.
That is only the lower half but that blow out shows both pieces and the boot.
On 2nd edit. Quick search on ebay
My guess is the 7c part numbers are splined lower halves and 9c are all going to be smooth.
Going roughly off what I see there I can probably sell the steering shafts for $150 shipped if anyone has any interest. That would be from column to box and include the firewall boot.
"newer box". Is it the same as a 2015 box, which is much larger?For the 99-04 crowd, the best way to go is the PSC SG-752R. The box is basically a newer box machined for the 99-04 36 spline pitman arm. It comes with a new high side hose. It uses the factory bolts and steering shaft. It a bit pricy but its plug and play and solves the mismatched parts issues.
Agree if it's not using the larger bolts then it's likely not "newer" meaning the larger box.That could be a good find for some folks. Those committed to staying with a dana 50 anyway.
If it's using the original mounting bolts, it's not likely the newer box that mounts with 16mm bolts.
Maybe a non-issue but I don't know if I would want more steering force and not upgrade the hardware.
