    I used their front cap and I tapped the top one. The only part that was a pain was getting the large snap ring to seat fully. I thought I had it right but a wheeling trip proved otherwise. I got it right the second time around and it's been working perfect for over a year now.

    Were a dealer for EMS products.

    They provide an easy way to add hydro assist to your steering box without having to port your own in the box itself. With the caps you don't have to worry about getting shavings in the box, you just remove the stock piece and go.

    Like koldsimer mentioned make sure you get the snap ring in all the way upon reinstallation.

    There is a small pin hole on the top bottom end of the steering box, stick a very small punch in the hole and bam the snap ring comes out. Make sure you have a drain pan underneath the cap. Then put the ported cap back on with the snap ring seated all the way!

    If you want a write up just email me!
