    Has anyone done their own reconditioning of their steering gear box? It looks like a guy could do this himself, preserving his original case, etc., and also quicken the steering ratio at the same time. That is if this is legitimate;

    Firmfeel Mopar Suspension and Steering

    Has anyone had any experiences with this approach, supplier, etc.?

    Thanks for the help.

    I did indeed rebuilt my steering box, painless...I ordered the " FirmFeel" 20:1 and the seal kit used CV joint grease for the box, I am thinking about 6 small tubes, from any supply store. Follow the factory manual for details......My only problem I had was with the selector shaft it did not have a "keyed" spline....FrimFeel lied to me....asked before hand. Had to grind down a spline to make it work.
