Steering box or column first.
« on: December 12, 2018, 14:46:16 »
For those of you that have been down this road can anuone advise if it is possible to install the steering column after the steering box is in place?  I would like to finish a bunch of under car stuff and leave the underdash area clear but I am wondering if that is a mistake?

No problem to do that Pat. Might be the easiest way also. Use your index pins to align the box and the column during installation of the column.
