That's how I did mine. Just make sure your pitman arm is in the center of its travel, that is, sticking straight out. Clamp the bracket in place and mount your box, and turn the pitman arm through it full arc to make sure everything moves OK and nothing binds, bumps into anything else,etc. Then weld er up. Good Luck.

I bought a aftermarket arm for my Vega box. It is shorter than OEM. Slowed the quickness down. Plus is is stainless and shiny. It goes with the rest of the shiney front end....
:p :p
