    Has anybody seen this? My steering gear is leaking and I was considering replacing the box when I ran across this fix it kit. My buddy at the dodge dealership can't seem to find anything in his computer. Does anybody have a part number? This would be significantly cheaper than replacing the box.



    Thanks,

    R

    Thanks for the link to the rebuild thread. That's really something I hadn't even considered looking into.

    they work good if ur box isnt messed up. i fixed my old one a few times with a shaft kit but eventually it would leak after about a week anyway. too much play in the shaft.

    Does anybody know where I can find a schematic of the gearbox? I may try and just find the part number for the bearing and see if the stealer has one.

    My buddy at the local dodge dealership said he could get the needle bearing, but I didn't think to get the part number for it. My truck is pretty much trail only, and I just need to stop the leak so I'm not having to constantly add fluid to it, so I don't think I'm going to replace the bearing... mainly because it's 3-5 days out, special order, and I want to get this done this weekend.



    The worst part of the whole thing... I'm going to have to clean my garage so I can get to my work bench, and then I'm going to have to practically rebuild my workbench so I don't rip the top off of the workbench when I'm using the vice.

    i can tell you that it's not fun to put this kit in. i have just redone mine and i had no luck. it's better to just get a different box. i know saving money is what it's about, but the hassle of doing an overhaul on the box is pretty much a waste of time. so i would just get another box from the local salvage yard.
