Redhead steering gear

Just swapped the new gear box in yesterday . I think it was 600 bucks before u send the core back to them. Truck drives better then it ever has, it's actually responsive now. Wish I had done this a long time ago. Anyway don't wait if u are debating on doing this

I think this is my next mod for sure! What were your symptoms before replacing the factory unit?

I heard a bunch a bad stuff lately too. Them not giving you your core money back.

I went with AGR instead. Im almost road worthy as I pulled my engine so I will let you all know this weekend as I just have to put the front end back together.

AGR box was $439 with machines in ports for hydraulic assist instead of crappy dampers. And to boot he doesn't want your core. Said its a POS and would never give that box to his worst enemy. Lol.

Had a lot of people on Ford Trucks stating they've got had leaks and failures with them in the last 6 months. Enough that I wouldn't get one.
