Ok so my 02 F250 is mainly used to pull the toy hauler and to use for around the house but bottom line not my only vehicle as I have a commuter car so mileage on truck has been very little for the past 2 yeairs.
So anyway yesterday morning loaded the family up to make a couple a errands in the truck and I backed down the driveway and I hear this clunk and I was like WTF. So I wanted to get out of the street so I put in drive and move forward a few feet and this is what I found....
Well so much for taking the truck to make some errands and pick up a couple of craigslist finds..... Yeah it appeared that there was a crack there already but holy **** I'm glad it happen where it did vs going down the freeway with family and hauling 12k lbs.
So onto the replacement of my steering box. I know Red Head is the one to go with but will I really see the difference vs Red Head and Les Schawb or any other rebuilt unit? I know if it was my only vehicle and I was putting lots of miles on it I would do the Red Head for sure but like I said I probably put 5,000 miles a year. So will I regret not going with Red Head?
BTW I'm in the Seattle area so shipping from Red Head is not an issue.
