Is the steering box on the 1st Gens & 2nd Gens interchangeable?

the pitman arm is just a hunk of metal,,,,,,looks like a box wrench,,,,,now if you can rock the steering wheel and the pitman arm dont move, the steering box is the problem,,,and if the pitman arm does move, the problem is probably the drag link or tie rod ends,,,,,,both 1st and 2nd gen steering boxes fit....

Maybe I am needing a drag link? I can rock the steering back & forth & there is loose play in the joint that hooks up to the driver side wheel. I just put new tie rod ends on it due to hitting a boulder backing out of a grand canyon driveway & bending the driver side tie rod end.

see if there is slop in the drag link ball joints where it connects to the drag link hanging down and where it connects to the steering arm which is connected to the wheel backing plates,,,a good system makes the tires rock the same as the steering wheel,,,,,if the steering wheels rocks more, there is a problem,,,,,,just start lookig for looseness as someone rocks the steering wheel back and forth....

There is loseness in the ball joint that steers the wheels. That is the part that I was thinking was the pitman arm
