I'm tryin to update the steering on my 57. Right know i have an unknown steering box, looks like a 60s 2wd box and the tilt steering column from a 80s suburban and the shaft i have no idea. Its a sketchy set up that i don't feel overly safe driving. I have a Dana 44 front end that i plan on doing cross-over steering with from sky manufacturing. Its says to use a 2wd box. But i want to change it all. Hoping some of you may have some suggestions or have run into this before doing the 4x4 conversions. Also wondering if the summit racing steering columns work with 57 chevys?

they are all over the internet. there is a place i think in Iowa or Idaho that has alot of them for sale. there is a place in Ohio and in Pennsylvania. they can range anywhere from $2,000  on up for something decent and running. even check out ebay, or military vehicle magazine online.

You might try to find a wrecked dodge diesel. Like a early model 90's dodge 2500 with a cummins. just make sure it has a mechanical injection pump. Use that with a 5 spd. and do a mild lift. You would have to use a flat bed or change the location of your rear axles but that would make for a sick sick apache.

buy an old military chevy 4x4 and strip the body. they have 6.2L diesel and low milage on most of them.
