Get a new box and you get a lifetime warranty with it if you get it from autozone. its easy to install.
Thanks, THAT made my mind up to just get another one

I did the autozone box 2 years ago. Just last month it was getting loose. The shaft the pitman goes on was loose. Paid for another box, took home. 45 minutes I had it swapped and took the old one back and got my money back. It was great. LIFETIME!!!

that's good to know, next question, how hard is it to change the seals instead of replacing the entire gear?
And do people have success doing that or is it a lost cause or too labor intense
? I know I could do it if its doable cause I've worked on cars since I was 10

So basically the stock one is all I need then, the biggest tires I can put on mine are already on it they are 235's no need for me to go any bigger my Jeep will go anywhere I want , need or think I might fit the way it is

michiganhunter I just installed the same one a few days back, woke up this morning, and it's leaking again from the top of the gear box up by the steering shaft gear!

Yachtman I bought the reman from advance, cardone. $99 plus 40 core free ship works great. Very happy. Search advance 30% coupon. Nice and easy install.

Stering box question

ok guys three years and it still leaks a little,
2001 Jeep Wrangler, 150 cid engine 3 speed automatic transmission and power steering,
what steering boxes off of what vehicles will fit?, I've heard that the 99 Durango box is an exact fit but is that actually cheaper than a Jeep one?
