    Question New Power Steering Gear Box - for my 72 GS 350

    I am checking out this power steering box from ss396. I want your advice. I believe that it is time for a new unit as opposed to a rebuilt.
    I believe that some of u guys have purchased this or similar unit. Question - are all the hose connection locations compatible with our Buick hoses & orig power steering box?

    Kind of steep but that should work. You do realize that is not a quick ratio power steering though.

    Here's what I used on mine 71 GS 350 4 speed for about half that. Only difference is no rag joint and 2.6 turns lock-to-lock.

    I think its the same box that I sell but not sure if its quick ratio."This is a newly rebuilt correct style standard ratio power steering gear box" I think its just a rebuild. I have 6 in stock ready to go. I kept the price on the box the same 120 shipped and just raised the core charge to 120 as well old core charge was 100. when i get the core if its a 3 turn core you get the 120 back if its a 4 turn core you get 60 back. It cost me 60 to convert it over to quick ratio. let me know I can have one out to you tomorrow. just Pm me shipping address full name and paypal address.
