They are internal, but they are adjustable if you know how (Information on rebuilding the steering box can be found in the Chassis Service manual for your year car). If not there are specialist on line that will sell you a rebuilt box off a Corvette that will bolt up to your Impala set up for your turning radius (stops set to keep the tires from hitting the frame). Keep in mind that GM went to a metric fiber rag joint in 1976 so any box from a later car will need an aftermarket adapter to bolt the steering column to the box.
