I'm thinking that it's gonna be a 36 spline. The reason I say this is that when I switched suspensions 2 weeks ago, the guy's truck that my new suspension came off of had a 36 spline and his truck's an '01. My truck has a 32 spline but it's an early '99

Ok I have removed the power steering pump and the steering gear box, it is a 36 spline so my local parts store carries it. The steering gear box still has the pitman arm stuck to it and I know my gear box is bad because I can't even get the pitman arm to turn on the box, I even smacked it with a small sledge hammer and it didn't budge so I know my steering pump was working overtime
