    NAPA has a rebuilt PS box for $196 (no core charge mentioned). Not sure about warranty length on the NAPA box.

    Advance Auto Parts has a couple of different rebuilt PS boxes by Cardone for $159 (plus a $50 core charge) and they have a limited lifetime warranty.

    Auto Zone has a rebuilt PS box for $156 (plus a $57 core charge, same brand rebuilder as Advance Auto). They also have two PS boxes by AGR for $372 (no core charge).

    A brand new GM PS box is about $500 I think.

    I've been thinking about this myself for my '85, because there's still some play there and the box is the only part of my steering that isn't new. I'll do the ORD reinforcing kit at the same time.
