93 F150 - Steering box leaking fluid bad HELP!!!!

HI guys,

I've been losing fluid fast, and I couldn't figuire it out at first, but I noticed my pitman arm was soaked with fluid, so I crawled underneath while someone turned the wheel and I could see fluid leaking out the bottom of the steering box where the shaft come out to connect the pitman arm to. Looks like there used to be a seal there. Can I just get a new seal? Or am I gonna have to dish out $300 for a new box? HELP, this is my DD and I need it fixed soon!

I have never replaced that seal before, the sector shaft seal, but im sure you could without too much trouble but most likely, you still would have to pull the box to do it right i would guess. The ford steering box sector shaft seal kit part number is- D7AZ-3E501B. Was $16.17 from ford a couple years ago, according to WD40 here who recently rebuilt his. I do have the rebuild instruction sheet in front of me, dont sound too difficult to remove the two sector shaft cover bolts and carefully tap sector shaft out with soft hammer, but again i have only replaced input shaft seals. Reman units are available for less.

Good luck

Check this out and listen to Chvyboat's response

If your shaft is pitted and rusty a new seal might not do the trick, you may need to go for a re-man'd box
