We have one of these bad boys in the shop and the owner wants to add power steering to it. No one, that I've found, has a power steering setup or even one they can piece together. Does anyone have any ideas?
P.S. its 2 wheel drive standard cab long bed

you could always put a camaro subframe under it,but that is alot of work.. I cant believe nobody makes a front suspension for that thing .. I think a 72 Blazer steering component will fit on it ??

i realize this is an old thread but i've been reading up on these trucks lately and thought i'd post this for future reference.
As mentioned, you can use a camaro sub frame OR you can swap in the front crossmember from a 73-87 silverado with the IFS just to name an alternate method.:shake: supposedly it bolts right up!

yes, it does bolt up! I've been looking for a 64-66 longbed for our shop truck...love em

Try searching on www.67-72chevytrucks.com there may be some threads on there to lead you in the right direction.

i love the 64-66. my dad has a 62 but i dont like the fact that the A pillar isnt like most current vehicles...its opposite of what it normally is which means no one piece window:(

You can use an earlyer one allso from the 68 on up trucks.You can take the whole front cross member from a donor truck and it will swap right in.Just be sure to grab everything swaybar,tierod,pitmanarm.

Yeah, that too.. I need to find a 68-72 6lug 2wd to swap my truck over too.. Seems like everyone I found it is a 5 lug truck ..

Why you want to swap back ? 70 & older 6 lug ,71 on up 5 lug usually had front disc brakes.

My 62 is 6 lug and I would like to keep it that way, I have been trying to find a 6 lug disc that isnt a 4x4 hub ..

I added PS to a 64 (Box was out of a 72 Chevy) and kept the stock crossmember. I had to drill 2 holes if I remember correctly to line up with the new box but it was a bolt in. I also added a doubler plate to help supprot the frame.
