A1 CARDONE Remanufactured Steering Gears are the component within a car’s steering system that guides the wheel’s movement in conjunction with the direction that the steering wheel is rotated, helping achieve ideal steering response for more efficient driving. The micro-finished surfaces of it's shafts are precision-designed to provide a smoother drive, while the factory-set Pitman shaft transmits the motion it receives from the gear box by moving the wheels left or right to turn the wheels. OEM grade O-rings and seals are used and meet required specifications, providing you a quality product both you and your vehicle can rely on.

Product Features:

  • All critical components (campacs, spool valves, etc.) are triple-tested to ensure product reliability
  • Units are supplied with 100% tested and calibrated pressure relief valves for guaranteed performance
  • Shafts are surfaced to precise specifications to eliminate premature seal wear and extend gear life
  • Rust inhibitive "Cool Dip" finish is a penetrating dye that completely covers all exposed surfaces for a consistent, protective finish that will not crack, flake or peel
  • Guaranteed fit and function
  • Meets or exceeds O.E.M. performance

Although I had to replace it twice it is still a great product. I have had this truck for 300,000 miles this is the 4th gear box i have put on it. The truck wandered and was unresponsive since it was new. This is the first gearbox that actually fixed the problem. it now steers better than it did new. Even though I had to take it back due to a blown seal the second one steers just great and has been in for 6 months doing fine

The gearbox was delivered on time as had been prearranged. I installed it the next day, but it has a "honking" type noise when turning to the left. Now not most people who write reviews are master ASE certified auto techs so I'll wait for now and drive it a couple of days to see if it settles in before sending it back and ordering a 2nd box, CJ

Comments about Cardone Power Steering Gear - Domestic:

I went through 2 of these trying to eliminate the play in my steering, neither one of them was any good as verified by 2 different local shops, I just returned the second one for a full refund and bought an AC Delco. This whole thing cost me hours of time plus payments for diagnosis.If you own a GM vehicle save yourself a lot of time and aggravation and just order AC Delco parts when needed. Once I installed the Delco gear box all the steering wheel play disappeared.

Comments about Cardone Power Steering Gear - Domestic:

Stock box had a little play but worked fine, swapped in the new box and it over centered, felt like it was trying to take control. After one block I stopped at a light and found it quit working. No power steering until over 1500 rpm. Total waste of time... Putting the old box back in now. How these people stay in business is beyond me. Junk Junk Junk JUNK!

Comments about Cardone Power Steering Gear - Domestic:

Steering box did not last but six months. Power steering pump only lasted eight. Yes steering box was under warranty but still had to pay for labor. Didn't even mess with warranty with power steering pump. Labor too much to take the chance. Got a quality pump somewhere else. Advance has great prices, but I guess you get what you pay for. As you can tell, NOT TOO HAPPY.

Not worth the money

About Me Casual Driver

Comments about Cardone Power Steering Gear - Domestic:

I bought this instead of waiting to get a Delco part. That was a huge mistake. After 2 days of working on it, because I have a k2500 4x4 and the box is not easy to get at, I finally got it in. On the jack stands I could grab the tires and turn them just fine but as soon as I start the motor there's now way to turn the wheels, they just won't move. I called a mechanic friend and he told me it was defective and he sees it in a lot of re-manufactured aftermarket parts like this.

        Fit as it should and works well. I installed this along with a power steering pump and new hoses. Steers as close to new as a '92 truck can.

              It had just as much play as my old one. When turning left it had a spot of resistance. I returned it and got the Lares gear box and it is fine.
