What manual steering box recommendations part number? stock front Suspension set up. Thanks Mike
If it’s the same as early trucks GM offered them with manual steering because those are the boxes that we use on G bodies
Speedway motors has new ones for G bodies, it will fit an S-10 too.........
They don't call it a G body, look for GM metric chassis

Copied from forum but interesting...
'82-'84 S-10's with manual steering came with a 3 bolt cover steering gear. The '85-'93 S-10's with manual steering came with a 4 bolt cover.
The 3 bolt cover version is a few pounds lighter than the 4 bolt cover version. The 3 bolt cover version has a 6.5 turn lock to lock. The 4 bolt cover version has 7.25 turns lock to lock.
The 3 bolt cover has a smaller pitman shaft. The 4 bolt cover has the larger pitman shaft. As a result, they use different pitman arms.
The 4 bolt version is popular because that pitman shaft is the same size as the power steering gear boxes and as a result is often times a direct swap in for some of the F-Body cars and others. They just use their existing power steering pitman arm and bolt in the 4 bolt cover S-10 box from an '85 - '93 and away they go.
I would like to look into a rack and pinion.
As someone posted the 4 bolt manual box from square body S10's will bolt on for PS replacement and you can use your original pitman arm. I've had one on my Camaro for years.
