Steering box problems
The stock steering box has developed a leak at the input shaft, and the darn thing is barely 31 years old! Sheesh!
Anyway, am I correct in thinking that the Waggie/J-truck box of similar vintage is a stronger unit that's a bolt-in replacement? The stock box has enough power for my 31's, but the darn thing gets loose and needs to be adjusted more frequently than seems reasonable - I've taken it out and adjusted it by the book at least four times, and it's loose again. It only has about a hundred K on it, and probably less than ten K since the last adjustment. I can't get excited about rebuilding a box that was only marginal in the first place.
