|geiman||Rebuild kit is definitely much cheaper, but I've had a few friends who have done it multiple times and not one of them has had it permanently fix the problem. Not saying it isn't possible, just throwing that caution out there.|

|Overthink||If everything's still nice and tight, you can get a rebuild kit and replace the seals, for a lot less money.|

PS I know the feeling of driving for too long. Worked night shift at a gas station, afterwards took an hour power nap then drove 17hours round trip during a winter storm. Almost died a few times during that trip. Never will I do that again, or at least try not too.

|RevCo666||rockauto being a good company, am I worrying for nothing about re-manufactured parts?|

Just did mine on my 97. 98 durango no snowplow form autozone, $190. I just had to turn the wheel to get to the bolt on the steering. I know your not suppose to do it but i wasn't going to take the grill off...
Went from a sloppy steering wheel with a dead zone to a very responsive(for a jeep) steering.
Used the instructions below.

|All Terrain JK||I put the Lares 1553 on my son's 00 tj about three months ago. Works great and really tightened up the steering. He also has 31s.|

|geiman||It's been a while since I've looked, but pretty much everything that cheaper than $285 will be a reman if I had to guess. At least anything worthwhile. I bought a reman from PSC for my old TJ for around that price, I think just a bit less, and it was a very nice box.|

More Information for ATSCO 7525

More Information for OMIX-ADA 1800410
(581.21$ beyond my budget)
I'm not big on Remanufactured parts, I prefer new with a warranty if I can help it... Any recommendations?

|geiman||On RockAuto, it's listed as "Steering Gear" under the steering section.|

|bittercritter||If you do a search I have seen a lot of people put the steering box from a durango in when they have to replace it. I believe its an upgraded beefier box that bolts right in and is cheeper. I've seen threads about it, and they have the part # listed on there. Not sure about the jeep oem one though|

Power Steering Box ??
Howdy folks, seems on the weekend I had a leak under the jeep towards the front drivers side. Wasn't sure if it was brake fluid or steering fluid. Took it to my mechanic yesterday. Today they explained that the power steering box (not the pump) was mildly leaking and to keep an eye on it, and make sure I had some power steering fluid available just in case. Now they said it wasn't bad at the moment and was quoted about 285$ CAN for the part. Now I know that my garage up's the price as they get everything from NAPA which I find is expensive in the first place. SO what I am trying to do is find a cheaper OEM part but rockauto.com doesn't have that part (most likely called something else). Could someone help me out on the proper part name/number as I have ordered from rockauto before and the prices where great but shipping to my corner is normally excessive but unfortunately normal. The make of my jeep is a 2001 4.0L sport. Any help would be awesome, thanks everyone
