powersteering to manual please help

Recommended Posts

You'll like the manual steering a LOT less. The steering ratio on almost all MJs is 14:1. If I remember correctly, the ratio on the XJ/MJ manual steering box was 28:1.


However, if you want to do it, you'll need the manual box and a pitman arm to fit it. I have no idea if the manual box takes the same pitman arm as the power boxes. I have a fuzzy recollection that back in AMC days they were different.

You are correct Eagle. I went from manual to power steering and like it a lot. The manual steering pitman arm and box has a smaller output shaft than the power combination.


i don't like powersteering.


You will really not like the manual steering. I could not wait to get rid of mine.
