These steering boxes are built in Washington state and offer unmatched steering control and longevity. This gearbox allows you to retain the factory steering shaft, as well as the stock pitman arm. This is a major advantage especially those with lifted trucks with dropped pitman arms, you will not have to change your pitman arm.
What makes a Red-Head steering gear better than your average parts store reman box?
Our re-manufacturing process includes:
- Machining out the housings and installing needle bearings
- Flame-spraying or replacing the shafts as needed
- Installing new control valves on some applications
- Custom fitting each worm & piston assembly with special ordered, precise over-sized ball bearings.
We also install every sector shaft on a lathe to check to be sure it is straight and true & polish the sealing surface to a higher polish than new
Red-Head Steering Boxes require a $400 refundable core charge that will be refunded to you once Red-Head receives your core box back. Cores with broken shafts or cases will receive partial or no core refund. Customer is responsible for core return shipping cost. No return label is included.
NOTE: There is a split for 2008 models. 2008 model year vehicles built in and before July 2007 require a 2768 gear box, where August 2007 and later models require the 2769.
