Yeah the pitman arm is a wear component on this truck and I won't be reusing it. Just wondered if you guys had more luck using a pneumatic hammer and picklefork-type tool for pitman arm removal from the steering box.

Some other guys swear by gettign an angle grinder and cutting a notch out of the pitman arm close to the splines, then hitting it with the puller. Seems appropriate that the thinner metal would allow more flex...
