Get your VIN and call Ford...I think they can look up part numbers off the VIN.

Can you count the splines on the inside of the pitman arm? FWIW I have changed boxes on 2 different SD's and both were 36 splined.

build date before 3/99 is 32 spline, after including yours should be a 36 spline.

Also if you are replacing both steering box and pitman arm it doesn't matter as long as they are both the same.
