When restoring our vehicles, paying meticulous attention to the engine, the paint, and the interior is a given. Regrettably, other important components such as the steering box may be taken for granted: "Hey, it worked fine when we pushed it into the garage." However, even from the factory, the steering box in your car is anything but precision, and even if your older Mopar car has "only 30,000 miles on it," it's still 25 or 30 years old. Moreover, if condensation has formed inside the box, it could be rusted inside. This is a critical component in your car's front geometry and handling; it may be time to give it a second look.

Rebuilding a steering box is more involved than simply cleaning it up and replacing the seals. Recently, we visited Steer & Gear in Columbus, Ohio, toured the facility, and followed along as the crew rebuilt a steering box. After Steer & Gear receives your old steering box, it undergoes a process that includes a complete cleaning and assessment, reassembly with new and restored parts as needed, and a testing process before being returned for reinstallation in your car. Best of all, the process will normally have the steering box back on your doorstep in a week or so.
