I need to know the difference between a F250 and a f 150 steering box and and if it is not the same what do i need to make it work on a f150. Is it posible?

if its for your bronco, the f150 and 250 are completely different as the 150 box is on the outside frame rail and has 3 mounting bolts

and the 250 box mounts on the inside of the frame rail with 4 mounting bolts.

the f150 is on the inside of the frame. it takes the same box as your ranger. Try agian.

87-97 l have never seen any other than the inside fraim with 3 mounting bolts. f150 - f350 call a wrecking yard and ask for the inter change info

well if you know everything then why are u asking?

and you never said for what year of f150 or f150

since ur bronco is an early 80's i figured it would be the same as the 70's or close to it

70's half tons are on the outside of the frame

70's 3/4 and 1 tons are on the inside of the frame

I see always smarter to fix it before u break it. But while ur at it.... SAS it and then u can do everything at once.

I was not asking you. mine is a late 80s bronco and they are all inside up to 96 and they are the same box as the rangers and the areostar vans. I do know about f150s. and the 70s are totaly diffenant.
