Comments about Lares Power Steering Gear Box:

The first one I ordered in was a box that had 3 bolt holes, not 4 like original. Output shaft had wrong number of splines. Input shaft was the wrong size. Everything was wrong. After loosing the $14 to have it shipped to my local store, I ordered another one online with free shipping and that one seems to be correct except for the piston size but oh well. Hopefully it is quality, only time will tell

        Comments about Lares Power Steering Gear Box:

        The 970 gearbox appears to be a well built product however the specifications given for this product are incorrect. The unit I received did not have a .8125 input spline but a .750 input spline. So if you're looking for a .8125 input spline you might be out of luck and the company who rebuilt it was of no help when contacted.

        Comments about Lares Power Steering Gear Box:

        This was an easy install that really tightened up my steering. However the provided rag joint replacement looks cheesy and not at all original. There were no instructions for bleeding the system or recommended checkout procedures.
