You can use the larger one available at Auto Zone, Napa, etc..
And use a die grinder to open it up a little to clear the pitman arm.


Otherwise you could order one that fits w/o modification online.

thanks...yeah i had the one from autozone that was just a smidge too tight to get around it so i ended up grinding the actual pitman arm since i don't need it anymore anyways. I also cut a little bit of the puller....i'm sure they won't notice when i return it.

When I lifted mine I tryed the snap-on puller that is supposed to fit and it was actually to small, we ended up using a universal puller.

Harbor Freight has a Universal Set that worked like a champ. Needed a little heat from the blowtorch as well, but popped right off.

What I used was a Large 2 prong Gear Puller. Came right off. PB'Laster Helps. Be sure to clean the shaft threads and nut threads with Brake cleaner and then use a Red Loctite when putting it back on. I used a 3' 3/4" drive ratchet to install and go it as tight as possible... worked out great. Also paint marking helps to see if it moves later on (which did happen when I had the shop do a lift). Add pitman arm nut to your 5,000 mile check list.
