Steering Box

Recommended Posts



also curious as to what happened...steering rack updates with a new upper plate or changing out to the most current steering box is what I have seen....we have been putting power steering into the newer/updated boxes without trouble...that box does look kinda cool tho....Hardy

What happened to the old one?

Hit a tree with the front tire blow off the top of the steering box. Dedub has done a subaru steering in he's it drives real nice but it rides even better he added a shock and left the stock one's in. Rides a lot better than mine.

what parts are damaged is the plate still straight did it just strip out the screws if it just stripped out the screws you can fix that with a helicoil kit I think a helicoil repair is stronger than the original

Re-drill ant tap a size larger. On the steering box above, 1.5:1 sounds awful fast for the trooper. If I'm right, that would be only about 135 degrees of steering wheel turn from stop to stop. Stock is about 2 turns and its still hard to turn. I had 3 turns from stop to stop on mine and it helped a lot. I don't think the power steering would be enough to push the 1.5:1 box.

Thanks Yes I can re tap But I was just looking to see whats out there. Lenny those cams are on the money with the new intake and fuel controller it runs real good the wife said my be to good since I hit the tree. I would like to see some else do the intake I thought it was better than the fuel controller. All 1100cc Chery motors have them on them except the trooper and that were I think is were you lose power at. On my air/fuel gauge it went from 11 when I start it to a 11.6 is what it will read when I start it now.. the part # is 472-1008013
