Alright guys. I need a power steering box. I can't find one anywhere. Orielley's and the like say they can't get one. Any suggestions with out coughing up gobs and gobs of green backs

Even Rock Auto says to send it in and they will have a vendor rebuild it...

Yeah. That's what I am learning. Looks like I may look into a crown vic swap. Not sure what to do at this point. For now I will just keep filling the fluids

Is it only leaking, but works fine otherwise? Might be able to change out the seal and be fine.

Did a little looking, and that same box was carried over up to 79. Still just as hard to find a reman box, but makes the year range to get used from a lot easier.

Yes. I'm considering that as well. It needs a trans and steering box. And a windshield. So. It is just a matter of money

Does anyone know if newer steering boxes are a direct swap? For the cost of a new or rebuilt box I could be most of the way into a crown vic swap. Just weighing my options

I just Reread an earlier post. All the way through 79! Thanks guys
