Check Vehicle Fit

A Steering Gear Box is 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 its 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 meet required specifications.

Product Features :
  • Precision designed micro-finished shafts
  • Factory pre-set Pitman Shaft
  • 100% tested OEM Grade Seals and O-rings

    I have installed 2 of these in the last 10 years, on separate trucks. one truck runs 32x11.50's, and the other is stock. gear boxes seam to be doing just fine. Not as hard to install as what most make it out to be. not fun, but can easily be done in 4 hr's or so, if you know what you are doing.

      Comments about Cardone Power Steering Gear - Remanufactured:

      *To bring the steering/handling back to the van like it should be.

      *It was easy to bleed out the air in the system
      and finding a 43.50 discount coupon online didn't hurt either.
      I didn't realize how worn the old gear box was until I installed the new one.

      *The worst part of the process was trying to get the new 35 lb. unit bolted up and getting the rag joint spline on the steering shaft at the same time by myself.

      *Things I learned @ loosen the steering column
      first then pull it up to clear the rag joint.
      Bolt the gear box up(3 bolts) then slide the column back down over the shaft.

          It seems fine so far, the steering box has a good feel while driving, was not the easiest job to finish but nothing to do with box. Good price and Most stores carry this item.

            I replaced my stock, beat to death power steering box with this one and couldn't have been happier about it. I recommend replacing the lines and the pump when you do this job. Anyone that has any experience with Ford power steering should know that it really is what's best for drive-ability and durability.

                    I went through six of these gear boxes in six months, and all had excessive slack in them that could not be adjusted out. Two of them were so bad I did not even install them. What is happening here is that when these boxes are rebuilt, they are not replacing the gear shafts, they are only replacing the bearings and seals. When you rebuild a gear box, the gears must also be replaced.

                        part was poorly rebuilt (if at all) steering is heavy and has more play than the original with( 235K), I will not leave this part on the truck and plan to install a quality part from different manufacturer.part was for 97 Tahoe.stearing shaft was covered with paint(must be clean)mounting threads needed to be chased as they were rusty and covered with paint(bolts won't thread in). anyone can tighten up worm gear play and get same results as this part. NOT HAPPY

                                  For step by step instructions i recommend that you go to your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and purchase a repair manual.

                                  These are not that difficult to replace. I haven't done one in a while but the hardest part is dealing with all of the rust! Depending on where your live I guess... The lines and everything could break off if it is rusted real good. Just soak it down with some good penetrating fluid and buy new lines just in case; you can always return them if you don't need them. You will need a puller tool to get the pitman arm off though. They are not that expensive, especially if you get it from Harbor Freight.
