    Went to order a rebuild kit for a power steering gear. Apparently there are 2 styles. One is with a "L" in the date code and the other is not. What is the difference and Where can I find this code at? There is an "L" in the VIN but that is about all I know of. Also does anyone know any articles about rebuilding the steering gear? /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif They want 189 for a new one with a 200 core charge. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif All help is greatlt appreciated.

    Call Matt at West Texas Offroad (www.westtexasoffroad.com). He can help you with the date code and he can rebuild it for you. That's all I know...
