    Does anyone have any tips or advice on lowering the ratio in the steering box in order to decrease the number of turns lock to lock on my 83 K5? What about the AGR variable ratio Superbox 2? Is that any good?

    You either have to swap the guts out of your box for a quicker ratio or find another box that has a quicker ratio. I don't think that internal power steering gearbox gears are something you can find at a parts store though. [​IMG]
