    Anyone using an AGR steering box? The two front bolts broke off in my in the box of my '71 Jimmy giving it the reverse NASCAR setup. I broke my biggest tap trying to get the bolts out, got pissed, and ordered an AGR box from Summit.[​IMG]

    West Texas has problems too. A good friend of mine has had 5 or 6 West Texas offroad 1.5" hydro rams and they have all leaked. Matt try's to take care of the problem but he still hasn't cured the problems with his 1.5" rams from what I have been told.

    AGR sucks a bag from what I have read about them lately.

    Now I'm worried. What seems to be going wrong with these products? The AGR box sounded like it would be better than buying a rebuilt stock one?:frown1:

    i put an agr on mine this past summer, no complaints, much better than the stocker I had on there that leaked a quart of fluid every 2 days and had an entire turn of slop in it.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but did you do a search here in the forums? There have been extensive articles about AGR. If you go to pirate, you will also find many articles about AGR. I went with PSC and I recommend them. The owner is the prior owner of AGR when they were good. http://www.pscpowersteer.com/

    On my race truck I use Tommy Lee gear. Another is Howe. Both do a better job finding suitable cores. A little more expensive than agr, but the quality is the best. Both companies are in So. Cal. Between them, they do almost all the off road racers.

    I put an AGR box on my truck a couple of years ago and have had zero problems.....

    It's basically just a stock box with some fancy machined covers, so don't be fooled into thinking it's some innovative "new" design. They've certainly had their share of critics for quality issues, and their customer service is bad enough that some vendors I know won't even resell them anymore.

    If you can find a company that's willing to stand behind it's product, you've probably found the right source for your new steering box. :cool1:
