Hi, three questions here.

1. Anyone know if you can buy the whole zq8 suspension bundled together?

2. I've heard that a person can't install zq8 parts on a 1st gen truck, is that true or false.

3. I thought the zq8 had a fast steering box?

the complete kit GM performance parts #12371217 , has everything but the wheels

ZQ8 will fit on a first gen, was developed on a first gen in 1991

yes they have a fast steer box

i also want to add that the ZQ8 uses the 2wd blazer lower control arms(i will be putting these on my first gen here shortly)

Thanks for the info, that really helps out a lot. Whats the difference between truck lower control arms and the ones on a blazer? I figured trucks and blazers used the same exact suspension components.

myself and a few others are pretty sure it has to do with the steering stops for the wider wheels, i have the ZQ8 arms in fromt of me and the stops look to be bigger than the ones on my truck

How hard is it to replace the steering gear? I'm sick of having to crank the wheel all over the damn place while i'm in the twisties.

It's pretty much bolt-in, point the front wheels straight, lock the steering wheel, remove the 11mm head pinch bolt from the rag joint at the box, undo the pitman arm nut, separate the pitman arm from the steering linkage with the correct tool, remove the P/S hoses, take out the 3 bolts that hold the box to the frame and that's about it.

You might have to transfer your pitman arm to the new box, use a pitman arm puller and make sure the new box is centered when you put it on.

ok, i put the part number for the steering gear box at the gmpartsdirect site and it cant find it. Is that the correct part number? Anyways, how much does it cost, and about how long should it take for me to install it. I'm not complaining about the handling of my truck but there is always room for improvement...

Hmmm that's odd, I got those part numbers from the GMpartsdirect website http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/perform...ATID=1306.html

I'll have to do some checking, they probably had a part number change.

BTW- the steering box by itself is probably going to be expensive, they offer it in the suspension package at a reduced price but you have to buy the whole kit. The complete kit #12371217 list price is $1114.84, GMpartsdirect= $780.39 plus shipping.
