Thumbs up

- well its been just over 2 days and Ive got to say- if you have a bad steering box dont hesitate to get this one- my steering wheel play is now zero! Ive actually had to readjust because the steering response is so quick. The install was easy, although I'd recommend a helping hand with the sway bar at the last bolt, it swings away pretty fast and heavy if your not holding on to it tightly (fortunately it missed!). Ive never replaced a steering gear before so when I went to bleed the air it was pretty nerve racking to hear that pump make so much racket- but once it had all the air out it was like a new truck! Not bad for 235000 miles!
