You'll be surprised how many models and years GM parts fit. You can take the steering box, pitman arm and any other front steering or suspension part from a large rear wheel drive GM 1970-1996 eg; Caprice Classic, Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham, Pontiac Parisienne etc.. Even the 77-81 TransAm WS6 steering box pitman arm, front sway bar can be swapped in for better handling. I can't believe parts stores don't stock the part. They're probably thrown off by the year. Try a auto wrecker they use interchange manuals so they could find the right part even if it's off a different year and model car.
