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?

Would like more info as well. Debating on just getting another OEM box since the stock one lasted well over 12 yrs.

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.
