    Hey gang, anyone know of a Steering Gear Box that would be considered an upgrade from stock? Stronger, tuffer and last longer? Is there such an animal for my 72?
    If not is Napa my best choice for a stock replacement?

    After I regeared and put that Power-Lock up front then drove it around on the street in 4x to break it all in I think the old original steering box is all worn out cuz now it is leaking quite a bit. This box has never leaked before so instead of taking chances I decided to replace the whole thing instead of rebuilding it.

    Check out www.agrsteering.com
    I would talk to one of their reps first because I put one in a jeep and lost some of my turining radius. Their equipment looks tough and their kits come with everything you need, except the higher volume PS pumps.... you need to use your original reservoir. Their products are pricey but you will get a better deal at Jim's Offroad Warehouse. Call Greg Griffith at 865-660-6911 or try their website - www.jimsoffroadwarehouse.com

    Power Steering Services can build you a good box. They don't have any faster ratios available for the 4WD boxes, but they can blueprint them and make them every bit as good as an AGR box.
