i have a leak in my steering box, its where the pitman arm connects to the box, i'm guessing its the pitman arm seal? any write ups on how to replace it? or would i just be better off buying a new steering box?

This seal is cheap and moderately easy to replace. You need to pull the pitman arm and unbolt your steering box from the frame (I just unbolted and rotated mine a bit). This is allot easier if you have access to a hoist.
