The idler arm is noisy...sloppy, scary on the freeway.What do I need to do to get this thing on and off. The oil pump is in the way. How can I jack the engine up an inch or two to get the bolt out. Are those bolts easy to get at parts stores? My dad suggested we just cut the damn thing out and get a new bolt...heheeh beats jacking the engine up.

The idler arm design went through some changes over the years and is different between body types, the worst idler arm set-up being the 60 - 67 A-Body single post units.
What are you working with?

Can I swap a power steering box for a manual box with no other steering changes (other than the column), assuming I get the box from the same year A-body?
