    My RR has been under a cover for the past 8 years or so and hasn't been on the road. Pulled it out a few weeks ago and got it running. New tires and wheels yesterday and finally drove it about 20 miles today. When i got home, it appears that the seal on the input shaft may be leaking. What is the easiest way to pull the box? Thanks

    Disconnect pitman arm, P S hoses from box, Disconnect steering column from the box. That will probably be the hardest part of the job. Take out the bolts holding the box to the frame, be careful it's heavy. I have a Roadrunner and a Coronet and both of mine leak. Hope to fix them before spring. Good Luck

    Just took the steering box for my daughters charger in yesterday to have it refurbished. They said one day turn around, we shall see.

    I took advantage of the front end being out of the car today and pulled the steering box. With both control arms off and the torsion bar out of the way, it only took about 15 minutes to get the steering box out. No doubt, that it will be going back in first before anything else. Thanks, Steven
