Steering Gear Box
#1
Probably need a new steering gear box as mine
is leaking pump fluid.
Summit racing sells one for $119.97 with a $35 core charge.

NPD sells one for $209.95 with a $300 core charge.

So what is the difference, besides price. Big difference there.

Mike your car is a M code - 4 speed with comp suspension

I think you will have the desirerable T or V variable ratio box

You might want to pull that box and send it in to a rebuild company
There are several
Lares corp is one of them - that is probably what you are getting from NPD
Not sure what summit has

I would either have yours rebuilt or if the steering is still fairly tight rebuild it yourself. You can get a complete seal kit from NAPA for around $35. That way you don't have to worry about if you're getting the same ratio box back.

I sent mine of to Chip at Power Steering. It came back looking great and he was a great guy to work with. He even located a better pump housing for me as mine was a little banged up. If you have a rare steering gear, I would recommend a rebuild of your unit returned back to you.

bkdunha,

Thank you for the update. It is an important to hear from members who actually use these vendors.

I strongly recommend a reman steering box from "Red Head Gears". They reman to a far more precise tolerance than the OEM units, and instsll needle bearings where there were none originally.
They will also give you a much tighter steering ratio, on par with a late 70s Vette / Z28.
I had mine done and the whole car becomes much more pleasurable to drive.

And it is no more expensive than a store-bought reman unit. You'llove it.
