Did you ever figure out a way to get the PSC box to work with the PPE steering?I Do have the setup, How ever I have not installed it. I did not want to run the Idler brace either. I like the looks of the 7/8 set up.
I purchased everything from Bdsankey. With the exception of the 1.5 inch bar. I found someone that purchased the wrong one and was selling at a discounted price that I could not pass up as it was still new in the box. I also went with the Kryptonite inner outer tierod setup and upper control arms.
I have been waiting on the 6 bolt box with 3 slots to install everything.
It will not work with out re-inventing the wheel and I don't have time to do that. I purchased new moog XD arms and the correct ppe 1.5 bar to work with the OE style tapered stuff.Did you ever figure out a way to get the PSC box to work with the PPE steering?
Couldn't tell you on that listing as I've never bought anything from that vendor. As far as I know there is NO good source for 33 spline/3 flat/6 bolt boxes out there as is evident in this thread.Bump...
I run the PPE steering setup and do not want to go away from my 33 spline and 3 flat pitman.
Is this the correct 6 bolt box from China?:
It has 6 bolts, 33 spline, application box says it is correct. They have sold lots, but gave generic responses when I asked questions, they claim it matches the image.
Any other offerings for the 6 bolt box in a 33 spline? I am suddenly leaving puddles out the pitman seal and need to swap mine now.
If you do it let us know how it goes. Good luck.Yes, I have the 7/8" pitman bolt. Overkill, but I sheared a pitman backing my 5th wheel and went straight to it years ago and it is holding up great.
I also have the lmm pump and hydro boost on the shelf
Going to order a cooler and all the lines
Maybe I will be a test pig and order they eBay box
The Chinese version is significantly less.Who's gonna be the guinea pig and order one of these?
Modulus is a Cardone brand.
Sounds like a solid install and choice of parts! Did you make sure to bench bleed the master cylinder?Box is in, it is amazing, about 500 miles on it.
Have the 6 bolt Ebay box, with 3 flat 33 splines and the 7/8" PPE idler/pitman and PPE tie rods. My truck is leveled with Kryptonite upper control arms and Mevotech TTX ball joints and Timken wheel hubs.
The box is obviously new and looked high quality, good fit and finish, well packaged. No documentation or part numbers to research.
Only fitment issue was the steering shaft connection to the box at the "rag joint" had a casting in the female side that would not allow the joint to slip onto the box. I am sure this is the fitment issue, and 15 seconds of work with a carbide rotary bit and it slipped right on the box and the cinch bolt functioned as it should.
I installed a new OEM master, OEM LMM hydroboost, OEM LMM steering pump, an OEM steering cooler, Sonnen lines from Rockauto, a Magnefine filter on the return and Royal Purple fluid. Along with Powerstop Z36 brakes and Russell braided lines this is the best steering and stopping Duramax I have ever had and this is coming from daily driving a CCSB LBZ for 13 years. Low speed steering and swinging into parking spots is no longer an issue, it tracks down the highway like a Camry, and the 11 to 1 dead spot is gone, I swear it turns sharper. I love my truck again.
My PPE tie rods were surprisingly loose at the outers for having 60K miles... warranty proccess is a pain so I just bought a new set. Also, the "old style" aluminum 7/8 drag link would not allow the bearings to be pressed out and I turned it into a couple hundred dollar paperweight which was a nice x-mas surprise.
P.S. I don't know what he does but John Kennedy has the best Duramax fan clutch, I have tried them all and come back to his, second one purchased now.
