    Are they rebuildable?? Say I went to the junkyard and bought one, is there a rebuild kit I could buy from the parts store, tear the box apart and rebuild it?? Just want to make sure before I spent 250 bucks for one

    Yes, there is a rebuild kit and it is $40-$80. I tried to rebuild mine and screwed the thing up so bad I can hardly believe they would accept it as a core. I do most of my own work..I built the engine, did the 14 bolt, lift..etc, etc...the steering box was the biggest PITA I can remember.

    only prob is that even if you pay for a rebuilt unit, you nver know what you are getting!
    i have the 3rd unit in mine now, and i have more slop than the 1st unit i cored. and a new one is over $600
    what about an agr?
    chris

    It needs a bigger motor.

    I rebuild chevy boxes for $100, tap for ram assist for $150. CK5 members get $25 of each of those prices. and I'll give 6 month warranty on the rebuild. If you are wanting a AGR box either rebuild your box or go to NAPA and get a rebuild box for your model truck and you'll have the same thing. For a Chevy they are nothing special.
