    Last night I was putting the final touches on a 3" body lift (ya know to get more clearance for Safari) When I realized that an awful lot of power steering fluid has "escaped" From the top of the steering box! I thought that I had done everything as recommended, like unmount the steering column, but apparently not so. Is this shot? Do I need a new steering box? Anyone have any experience with this??

    Did you actually unbolt the shaft from the box, or just loosen the nuts that hold the entire steering column up? If you just loosened the column nuts, and didn't unbolt the shaft, its possible that the column was stuck on something else and pulled the seal out of the box.
