You know they make tools for this right? Hammering and heat have no business applied to a steering box. I understand the tools are expensive (I own a couple of Snap On versions) but my local rental place has hydraulic puller (worst case) for $15 a half day. Small price to pay for safety and a job done right. Having to wonder "what if" when the steering box starts to leak 8 months from now really sucks.

X100. I saw a guy years ago make this mistake. Very dangerous to apply heat to the steering box bro.

Advance Auto will rent you the tool for free.

I've used them several times.

Yep. Not really too worried about damaging the old box. I did just rent the HD light truck pitman arm puller at autozone. Took less than 5 minutes to remove the arm. Basically you tighten jaws on the puller down around the drop arm with wing nuts so the puller doesn't come off, tighten the screw and then you smack the screw with a hammer tighten the screw again and it pops right off. Part number 27170 at autozone.

Congrats, you lucked out. I hate removing those damn things. that and the a arm balljoint have been the most scary pulling / pushing jobs around here. I had 40 tons on an a arm joint just recently, while it was on fire after the vaporizing grease hit the red hot metal. Fun fun fun.
