Steering Gear Replacement Help
Got new tires on her today. The ones from when I bought it were, just as I thought, out of round.
Got some nice Cooper tires and she is rolling down the road a lot better.
The guys down at the tire shop, said they did not align because the steering box is in bad shape, and did not want to waste my money. I like that. They quoted me a price to replace the steering box at about $600.
I told them I try to do my own work if I can. Especially considering the money I spent on the service manuals...
So, a couple of questions:
1. Anybody recommend a good place to buy the part?
2. Got a good tool set, but no pitman puller. Should I try to rent one?
Any other recommendations for replacing the part. Does have some play I would like to fix.
