    Can't you buy a seal kit for the power steering box and how much of a PIA is it to install? Mine is dumping fluid out the top wheir the steering shaft goes in like crazy. Thanks in advance

    You can get a rebuild kit at Napa or other auto parts house for around 30-50 dollars. And yes it can be a pain in the a$$ without the right tools

    50$ rebuild kit to get a $2 seal that Auto zone Stocks?
    Swimming pool only needed to replace the output seals LOL
    Input you can remove the c-clip and drill two holes into the seal 180 from each other and pry out with a awl. BE VERY CAREFULL NOT TO NICK THE SHAFT OR HOUSING. it's best to have the box level or input down when drilling so the shavings fall away. flush the end with some brake cleaner to make usre all the shavings are gone...again it's best to have it level or down. Deep well socket to get over the shaft to drive the new one in and a coat of grease on the shaft and seal lip to make sure if slides on easy.
