(May) need some Flare Fitting wrenches for the hose connections. They can be tight and round off the Hex nuts if using a regular Open End wrench.
The Pitman Arm will be very hard to remove, I recommend spraying the splines and threads with WD40 or similar several times & a day ahead of time. May require some heat from a torch while applying pressure with the Pitman tool.

Flare Nut Wrenches-- These are Metric, you need Standard type.

These tools can be found at AutoZone, Advance etc.. they have loaner tools that you can use without having to buy them.

Have to unbolt the Rag joint from the Steering Column also but, that's easy.
