    See new steering box for sale but did not see a rebuild kit for one. Have you checked for play in the pit man arm. Also is every thing tight in the linkage's. Can't say much on the Ratio may be some of the other guy's will have a better answer for ya. :steering:

    The fast ratio's are hard to steer, imagine another 800 lbs on the front. Power steering with a firm feel box.
